    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!

    I am in NY now looking for a job, I am living in Brooklyn. Anyone has any idea where they are hiring now, I won't mind working in Queens, Bronx, Manhattan and Long Island area too. 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!
