Starting Wages for LPN's and RN's - Page 2Register Today!
- Dec 5, '08 by NursePochaI'm LVN in Santa Barbara, CA. LVN wages are no lower than $25/hr. I get $32/hr, but I negotiated due to my 13 yrs experience. Really depends where u live.
- Nov 23, '09 by laceface24I live in the bay area of california, and starting pay for a LVN is usually around $35/hr...RN starting pay is usually around $50/hr...its so crazy to hear wages being around 15/hr...that seems so low, but then I remember the cost of living is extremely high were I live.
- Nov 27, '09 by bugvw70As a new grad LPN in LTC in the south end of the metro Twin Cities area I started at 16.50 or so last year. Just over 17/hr right now plus shift differentials. The hospital that my LTC facility is affiliated with (across the street) also hires LPNs but I'm not sure what they are paying there.
