    I know for a fact in a family practice clinic it starts at $13.87/hr, LTC $17.00/hr and at a independent GI facility $13.25/hr. But what is really weird I worked as a pharmacy technician with no school except for on the job training and made as much and having alot less responsibility. Yes I made the drugs, but I always had a double check by a pharmacist. Now as a nurse I do the work with noone double checking me and the pay stinks. I also found out that one of my girlfriends who is a RN, BSN just got offered a job in ICU for $22.50/.hr. That wasn't that impressive at all. I guess before I went into nursing I assumed that the pay was better considering the responsibility. And no I didn't go into nursing for the pay, but some places are down right cheap.

    I am in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. When I was a new LVN with no experience, which was 18 months ago, I was started at about $18.50 at a local nursing home.

    I did some research for southern california and the avg salary for a LVN in San Bernardino was $58000 and $61247 in the OC and LA county was $58078 The US national avg is $48149. I cant remember if i got this info from monster or career builder. I hope there info is right because that would be a nice income.

    These averages are rather high, even for Southern California.

    If the average RN salary for Southern California is $70,000 yearly, then the average LVN in that area is definitely not earning in the $60,000 range per year. I am a native Californian who attended an LVN program in the Los Angeles area 2 years ago. Most places in the area were paying anywhere from $15 to $25 hourly, with the average hourly rate hovering at around $19.

    Read the link below. It shows the different RN salaries in each state. Even though the webpage is dated for December 2005, the info still accurately depicts today's wages. LPN/LVN salaries in Southern California do not even come close to what RNs in the same area are being paid.

    The abovementioned link is from the California labor market info website. This is an official state-operated website from 2007. The average hourly pay rate in California for LVNs is $22.48 per hour. The 25th percentile earns $19.04, the 50th percentile earns around $21.88, and the 75th percentile earns around $25.48. With these pay rates, you'd have to work plenty of overtime to reach the $60,000 range.

    This particular salary survey is from March 2007, and it indicates that the national average for LPNs/LVNs is $38,000 per year.

    The abovementioned link was updated on August 27, 2007. It indicates that the average LVN in Riverside earns a whopping $18.00 hourly. An $18.00 pay rate does not add up to anywhere near the $60,000 range at the end of the year, unless you are killing yourself with overtime. Realistically, it will add up to between $36,000 and $40,000.

    The abovementioned link is from the 2006-2007 U.S. Department of Labor statistics website. This is a government website. If you scroll to the bottom, it will have the national averages of LPNs/LVNs in various working areas.
