So, I'm waiting on the results of my NCLEX exam to come in. I'm praying to god it all went well.. i'm not sure how to feel about it honestly.
Anyhow I completed my LPN program in Orlando, Florida and am moving to NYC by myself within the next two months. So I only have ME MYSELF AND I
to support me in that crazy city....
Can i start applying for jobs already even though i still haven't gotten my NCLEX results back?
And for those living up north, what is the hourly pay rate for a new grad LPN? All the experience I've had has been during my clinical rotations and stuff. Does that count as legitimate experience???
Also... can someone tell me different areas I could potentially work at other than nursing homes??
I went on INDEED.COM to see what the aver. annual salary for an entry level LPN is in NYC and it said $56,000.... that's still about $3 grand a month (AFTER NY TAXES whicha re ridiculously high...)
Is this even close to accurate?
