lpn pay in Ltc

  1. I just got hired at a Ltc facility and they're starting me @16.50 hr for prn. I have almost 5 years of experience. Is this normal pay around the Charlotte area?

    I am an LPN and have been one for only a year. I make 17.50 an hour, although I live in KY, I hope this helps

    I found this job in like a month and it's only prn. I'm still looking for a full time job though. I was interviewed twice but have to call in a week to see if in hired. It's through Carolina medical system.

    As a new Nurse I was started with 19$. I make 20 now. I have 1.5 years of experience. I do work in a small town outside of Charlotte, however.

    Thanks. I'm not having any luck finding full time work and I've been here since November 😔

    Just as a comparison, I have been an LPN for 10 years. In East TN, I make $18.50/hour. I haven't made less than $15/hour for the past 5 or 6 years. When I first started out in 2003, I made $11.50/hour. As far as I can tell NC is not that much different from East TN as far as nursing pay goes.

    It took me a while to find a full time job also. I'm working full time now like 30 minutes away from Charlotte. I make 20.00 an hour
