    My area, CT, the per-diem pay is around $30 and regular pay with benefits is around $24 an hour. But, the cost of living is extremely high here. This is for nursing homes. Not many hospitals hire LPN's here.

    I'm in Iowa, work for the state, just graduated. Starting pay $18.63, free insurance for worker and family, plus other benefits. However, I beleive this is the hightest starting pay for LPN around Iowa I have heard of.

    Well, I can tell you LPN's don't get paid that here in Tennessee, anywhere. At the hospital I used to work for, the LPN's topped out somewhere around $18-19/hr. after about 15-20 years experience, and just stopped getting raises.
