    Not an LVN yet, just a student... In the Dallas/Fort Worth area the nursing home I used to work at started out at $19, I would guess that average is $17-mid twenties. Cost of living is rather inexpensive in our area too, houses are so cheap here compared to the west coast, you can get at least twice the house for the same money it seems! So to anwser that person's question, yes on two LVN's salaries you can get a pretty nice house in Dallas/Fort Worth.

    I was offered a position in a sub-acute/LTC facility for $13.50 plus $1.00 diff for evenings. This facility is owned by a hospital system, so they pay acute care wages. The LTC facility I am interviewing at tomorrow starts at $16.25 per hour with $1.00 evening, $2.00 night diff, and $3.00 weekend differentials . This is my facility of choice, so I hope I get hired! By the way, this is upstate NY.

    Pay here where I am at is about 12.00 an hour. You can make more with an agency. They make about 17.00-24.00 an hour. Hospitals are paying about 11.25 an hour. Long-term is the best way to go to make any money. You basically need to go to Birmingham or Huntsville to make some money. I do not know, but all in all you just have to leave the state of Alabama to make a decent living. I am originally from Texas but I love the south, was considering Florida, Georgia, or maybe South Carolina.....just have to do your research. The cost of living here is decent but just need to relocate where I can make about 17.00 an hour on a regular basis. I am going back for my RN degree, since I have been working I know that this is something that I really need to do...... I work days now so I cannot really complain get to be home with my family.. I am so use to working nights that I do not know how to act. I will be back on nights when I get back into the RN program.. I hope everyone eventuallys get the salary they are looking for.

    This topic has been around before, but I was looking for something more up to date. Things have fluctuated in past two years or so. I know people are always looking for salaries and most of the time its for RN's. I'll start ;-)


    Around the Cincinnati area here I'm not sure about the starting pay or pay in hospitals for LPN's. But I know LTC facilities are about 16 to start ranging up to about 22. I've seen ad's in the paper saying $24 but I don't know what that was for. Agencys are about 21-25 dollars for LPN's also. I believe Jobs are plentiful around here! Also when I was up in columbus, I heard an instructor saying they are starting their LPN's out with $27-30 while the RN's get about $40-50 ..I don't really believe that, but I just tossed that out there maybe for some clarification?

    I am a new grad, hired at a LTC facility, hired at $15.50/hr with pm shift differential. I live in a town of about 14,000. My friends tell me that in the larger Mpls/St. Paul area the wages are a dollar or two more to start. I like working close to home.

    I will start at $15 an hour(plus free health insurance) once I graduate in June. Plus, they pay for IV certification. LTC pays more but it wasn't an area I am interested in.

    LTC is not an area I really enjoy,but at leaast now I'm a nurse. AS an aide I did like some aspects,but when I worked in the ICU that is where I wanted to stay,
    I'm going for my RN and then I will work in the hospital.As an LPN at least here you are not allowed to do much and some aspects you are a glorified aide, in the hospital.
    So that why I chose LTC at 3-11 I will take charge it will give me management responsibilities I can carry out.
