Salary query for LPN

  1. I'm wondering if anyone knows the salary of LPN's in the Chesapeake, VA area. I'm not gonna be done for a year but will move there upon graduation.

    Ouch! Far cry from the $21 they get here. I'm curious how low the cost of living is. Chesapeake, VA vs Las Vegas, NV...

    It may also depend on where you work. My area ranges 16$-30$. Its a vague range, but the average is 19 to start for a new grad. Have to remember that as you get experience, the pay grid goes up. I started at 16$, I'm making 21$ now

    I am glad to have read this. I looked at what seemed like an assembly line LPN school the other day and they were telling me brand new LPN's in the Hampton Roads area start at $18.13 but those numbers were from back in 2010 and since then the pay has gone up. I thought then and sure now they were just blowing happy smoke up my behind.
