LPN starting pay $26.50!

  1. 0
    My brother just finished up his LPN school a few months ago, he got hired here in the metro detroit area in MI for $26.50 starting.
    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.

    You will be hard pressed to find that kind of salary elsewhere.

    I make 26.50 (that's with shift differential) on weekend 3-11 shifts. I am per-diem, that's not unheard of in north jersey, if you do per-diem. I was making $28, per-diem (no differential), but a terrible job, not worth it at all!

    That's great pay- where I live experienced RNs don't even get that much- and that's w/out bennies.
    And I know housing is cheap in Detroit right now.

    That is excellent pay even without benefits, considering Michigan state median income is at or below national averag. New Jersey is probably number one (just my guess).

    I don't get any benefits, and the cost of living is way high here. RN's (not per-diem, with benefits) get between $28 and 35 an hour.
