    Depends on what county you work in and what type of facility. Office nurses make between 14 and 16 an hour or so. LTC around 16-18 an hour. The closer to major cities you are the more you generally make. Then you could get differentials for working night/evening shift of about 1-3 dollars an hour. These are estimates.

    O ok thx i live In Nyc..
    Just to let you know, I too live in the NYC area, Staten Island to be specific, and as a new grad lpn on my first job (office setting) I was making 21.63 per hour In Manhattan. At my current job (LTC facility), here on SI, I am making 24.18 per hour. So as NamasteNurse said it varies on where you work; the city & type of facility. Good luck on your nursing journey!!!
