Under 1 yr experience, I think that they start at GS3, maybe GS4, so that's $11-$14 hr to start, plus differentials.
Over 1 yr experience, GS4-GS5, so $14-$15 hr to start, if a lot more experience the pay should be over $20 hr. I know a few that started over $20hr, not sure how much over it was, but they had a lot more experience than me (GS6??). I'm just over 1 yr.
New LPN's get paid less than NA's at the VA unfortunately. Good luck. There aren't too many openings at the VA, I work at the VA as a tech and make $15hr, I just applied for a LPN job at the VA in JC. I hope to soon start working as an LPN, my pay should be $15hr and that's only because I'm already there.
If you drive over to Asheville, NC (I did that for about 3 months) the pay is a lot higher, I started just under $17hr to start, plus diff
Pay is based on experience and a new grad the pay is very low plus it takes forever to get on once you are hired. It is the best place I have ever worked though and can't imagine working anywhere else.
