    I'm a brand new LPN, still on orientation to a LTC/ALF/Rehabilitation facility in Florida. They started me at $19/hr and said my pay will go up after orientation. I work on the rehabilitation/ventilator unit.

    I was hired at small LTC facility and it was $22p/h after orientation plus differentials for evening and weekend shifts, and charge nurse position. I have friends who were hired at facilities that start you at $26p/h plus the differentials. Doctors offices tend to pay around $18p/h.

    I wish i could afford to move now, i definitely would.....Unfortunately, like millions of other people i am one of those that is stuck in a house we bought just before the market crashed....our house is now worth less than what we paid for it, and so it wouldnt be beneficial to sell....Cant rent either, caz noone would rent it for what we are paying for the mortgage. So, for now i guess i am stuck in Florida. That opportunity sure does sound good. Thx

    I was a south florida lpn for 9 years and was 13 an hour at my very first job, the following year i was making $20 an hour somewhere else. over the years I made an average of $18/hr with more when I went agency. (up to $25/hr), I now live in TN, and have yet to apply for my license here because the top out rate for lpn's here is $15/hr.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! whoever heard of such a thing????? what an insult!!! I have a friend that lives in NYC and he has been an lpn for 12years. he gets $33/hr.!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's so ridiculous!!!

    Been an LPN for over a year now. Starting pay grid for new grads in a teaching hospital is $23/hr, but because of my rotation of evenings and weekends, I make an average of $29-$31/hr. I love evening 8's.

    I know a LPN who graduated 2 years ago who works in a psychiatric facility in Nashville, TN that makes $17/hour, but that's the highest I'v heard of so far.

    I work in southeast TX at a CV & Stroke ICU/PCU unit and make 15.95 an hour. I pick up at least two extra shifts a pay period with incentive pays of $100.00 on weekdays and $200.00 on weekends. With differentials and overtime my average take home check every two weeks is about $1,800.00. I don't quabble about my paychecks at all.

    I'm very interested to hear of the STARTING pay rates especially nowadays after the recession (even though we're in a second dip). I live in Savannah and I've heard of LPN's starting at 13 at the hospital fresh out of school. LTC I'm not sure.
