    LVNs in Los Angeles County earn between $15 and $24 hourly. Generally, the doctors' offices and clinics tend to pay $15 hourly. Hospitals average around $17 per hour, whereas nursing homes and home health agencies pay between $18 and $24 per hour.

    Northern California nurses can and do earn significantly more money because the cost of living is so much higher, especially in and around the San Francisco Bay area.
