    I live in Tampa FL - work in a teaching hospital (level 1 trauma center) my base rate is $17 / hour with excellent benefits. Plenty of over time and double time (for critical staffing needs) if you want it.

    How much experience do you have, if you don't mind me asking? What area of the hospital do you work? Thanks.

    Hello

    I am from Michigan and though I am not a nursing student quite yet I do know that 2 people who worked with me in the LTC Facility that I am currently at graduated from their LPN program and went to a county facility starting out at $19.00 per hour. Thats not too bad for a new graduate LPN.

    Thanks Darlene.

    I'm starting LPN school in the fall and live in Clearwater. I really don't think I'm going to want to do LTC, so any info on other options in the Tampa Bay area is useful.

    I am an SVN in California and we are expecting to make $27 at least when we graduate. Some of the students who impressed the managers and nurses at the clinical site were offered jobs before even taking the boards and are now working 4 days a week, 12 hours per day. Calculated that somewhere in the ballpark of 70,000 a year. Here in Kalifonia, standard of living is quite expensive, but there are sattelite cities surrounding San Francisco, Oakland, San jose, etc that one may wish to live in. I live in the tri valley, it usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes to get to the hospitals that pay this wage. Housing is on the rise but one may still buy a 4,5,6 bedroom house for 500,000. And the weather is really nice out this way, too.

    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 in south central PA and the pay in my area (for a new lpn) ranges from 13.70 on up, most are in the 15.00-17.00 range with differentials on top of that. I am currently working as a GPN at a LTCF I make 16.50 + 1.00 shift diff, I understand I will get a good raise once I pass my boards. They also have really good benefits where I am. The place that hires at 13.70 to start is the "county home" but I hear that the benefits there are worth the low pay, I have been in this facility (we did our geriatrics clinicals there) and I don't care how good the benefits are, I wouldn't work there for that kind of money, or any for that matter!

    I live in eastern tennessee, working in LTC, new grad about 7 months, my first job i was making 13.25/hr 15min drive PRN, my second LTC job full time, decent single person benefits, making 14.00/hr, then I got a dollar raise plus .50cents shift differential for 2nd shift 15.50/hr about 30min drive, now I just started a new job about 45/min drive, wanted to start me out at 12.00 but got them up to 15.00, including .50 shift diff, but this LTC is in a very rural area and I really enjoy getting to know the residents and their lifestyles and life stories, I think doctors offices around here pay around 12-13, one nearby hospital starts around 14.00 but all the other hospitals are around 12-13 all of this is for <1 year experience

    Does anyone know the pay rate for LPN's in the West Central Illinois Area?

    Eastern Washington-LTC's are paying LPN's $18-20 an hour. I was told that the new facility-Richland Rehabilitation Center in Richland, WA is starting LPN's at $20 an hour. They have an ad in the paper right now looking for LPN's full-time all shifts.
