I was a LPN six years before I became a registered nurse. as far as compensation for becoming a registered nurse for your time as a LPN usually depends on the employer. in 2009 when I became a registered nurse 2 years LPN was 1 year of RN experience for pay purposes. but I have noticed now in 2012 none of your years as a lpn nurse count for pay purposes. this is mostly due to the economy being so bad and employers trying to save money I am currently in Ohio and I work for the Cleveland Clinic which is supposedly the four number for hospital in the country
