Thats what I thought the range would be about but I'm surprised that its the same as what the LPN's make. I would have thought it would be a little bit more at least.
Keep in mind also that LPNs and RNs usually start out a higher pay scale because they are dealing with approximately 30 patients.
As a new RN I was offered $30 per/hr [no benefits/differentials] to start at a LTC facilty. In the hospital I'm getting paid $24 per/hr with $2 weekend differential and $1.70 for evening/midnights.
