Anyone know the going rate for Los Angeles? I have 5 years experience as a Hospital Corpsman (medic) in the Navy. That breaks down to 1 yr in an ER, 2 years in a FP clinic and 2 years in a physical therapy clinic. I challenge the board in July. Will my experience help me get a good starting salary or will I be looked at as a rookie since I have never actually been an LPN?
