    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 work in Washington too. When I graduated in March 2007, I found that most LTC facilities pay any where from $18-25 an hour. Doc offices $14-17. Hospitals $15.50 on up.

    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.

    Hey i checked out your info and its from 2005. The information i got was from 2007 you should go check it out on either career builder or monster. Maybe that salary is including OT I dont really know but its what i read.

    The info i got is from careerbuilder.com. The statistics are based on avg california and high school level ed no degree's. Its based on what people say they earn so maybe people embellish or maybe they really do make that much. I hope they do cause thats good news for me!
