    I have been getting 27.50 as a pre visit nurse at a VNA. No benifits. The most I have ever earned was 28 and I have 10 years experience. I'm in the Boston metro area. Can't wait to get out of school, then I will be getting 35 dollars a visit!!

    Hi. I'm new here and would like to get into the healthcare field. I was thinking of going to school for LPN. The problem is that they only have one school here in Charlotte, NC where you can go to. The other problem is that it costs $29,000 to attend. Am I wasting time to go to this school because I'm thinking about the what-ifs? Like what if the starting pay is low in Charlotte, NC. Is there anybody on here from Charlotte that knows what the starting pay for LPN is? $29,000 is a lot of money for an LPN program if you ask me, but I want to get my foot in the door some way. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me.

    $29,000 is way to much for a for an Lpn program. I paid $7400 for my lpn program, I would check with your local community college for an Rn program because thats way to much. Goodluck though

    I am attending the same school he went to, I am half way done and will be graduating in 9 months I was hoping people in other states could help me guide my search for high-paying LPN cities in different states.

    Thats awesome! I am currentlly a New Grad in the Baltimor /Annapolis area in MD and LPN's are lucky to get 23/hour. I interviewed at a Plastic Surgery Center and they offered me 18/hour. I declined, as I make 15 as a CNA now. I have 6 years of health care experience w/ phlebotomy experience as well. It is becoming very difficult to find a job as a new grad.

    I graduated 6 1/2 years ago with 2 years experience as a CNT in home health & outpatient surgery. My starting pay was $12. Here in Tennessee that was considered good. Now after 6 years, I make $18, sad, huh? I realize our cost of living isn't as high as some of the areas mentioned but gee!

Or in Pennsylvania, somebody told me there are a lot of jobs down there. Any advice will be appreciated. I really need a job. I am an LPN.

    WOW!!! I have 25 years experience and have yet to crack the $20/hr mark for straight time. I can get more than that as agency, but not as a regular employee. I work in the Louisville KY area.

    wow! i'd love to make that kind of money. i've been an lpn since 1998, i work in a ltcf and make around $19/hr. which is a good amount, but $26.50 would be so much nicer and make living much easier. i live in nebraska. good luck when you graduate and are practicing. i hope you can find a job that pays that well.

    I just landed my first LTC job as a new grad at $24/hr second shift. A few of the other interviews I had gone on were in the $19 range. One of my friends I graduated with was interviewing for a few and they were trying to low ball her at $15 and hour, but she landed a job in an Acute Care Long Term Care Center on a vent unit as a new grad for $20/HR

    The cost of living is not as low here as people think that's for sure!
