- 1Sep 27, '11 by adogloverI know an lpn made $121,xxx according to her w2s. She worked ltc mornings and picked up plenty of overtime. She had a QA position, and she also worked the floor. Then she worked an agency Job, and her third job was working four days a month at another facility. Her starting pay was more than the seasoned RNsbecause she had extensive and I mean extensive knowledge of QA, infection control, wound care, MDS, and rehab. You name it, she is good at what she do. She also is the weekend administrator at one of the facilities as well.

also depends on where you live, granted if you live in a lower cost of living place then you are spending less money on things like rent, food, bills etc, people in high cost of living areas have to make more to pay to live
- 8Sep 27, '11 by MLMRN1120I made over $100k last year by working a full-time job in the city, and a PRN job where I make a great hourly rate. I am also a workaholic and pick up at least 1 or 2 OT shifts per week. Hopefully it'll all be worth it when I buy my first house
- 0Sep 27, '11 by eymilinWorking per diem in a 90+ bed NICU. There are occasional on-call opportunities and plenty of overtime available. I do work a lot (in a row), but am able to take a week off here and there for vacation/travel. It would be very very difficult to make 100K+ as a 1-5 year experienced full time nurse in this southern hospital.

The median sale price for a single-family home where I live is close to $600K. I make a little bit more than $100K/yr but it doesn't go far here.
