    I've been working LTC in an Alzheimers unit for 8 years. I do 6 hours on Tue, and 12's on Wed, Thurs and Friday. I like Santa Fe, NM and although Houston sounds like a good deal I think I'll stay here.

    I have been an LPN in LTC for 6 years in MN. I started at $9.98/hr as a new grad. I work ON-CALL @ 32 hours a week and currently make $16.44/hr. Because I work ON-CALL I do not get the state approved wage increases, and I am at the top of the pay scale in my facility set for LPN's. I do get a "longegevity bonus" because I have been with the company for over 5 years. That is 3% of your last years wages. I consider myself lucky. My sister and brother have had various jobs, never paying much, and they hate their jobs. I love my job and consider that before I became a nurse I only made $7.25/hr in a factory, which back then I thought was OK. I have taken assessment tests to start the RN program, but i have only done LTC and am fearful of any other area of nursing. I have thought of the military nursing options but am yet undecided. Being that I am at the top of the pay scale, I have to move on and go for my RN.

    Hi! join the military-they will pay for you to finish schooling for your RN!

    When I graduate next fall with my BSN I will go up a dollar, I think it is pretty sweet. This is my base pay dose not include shidt diff or week -end bonus. I work in a very employee orietned hospital and they pay us good, I think!!!!!!!

    -13 years
    -Staff nurse, L&D/Mother-Baby/Newborn Nursery
    -West-central Florida area
    -About 46K or so a year with night shift diff, scanty weekend and holiday diff, and call in's

    I work 36 hrs a week (12's) and am required to take 24 hours of call a month. Yes, I said TWENTY FOUR!! And THAT is a vast improvement. I came when ours was a brand new unit and we WERE taking 12 hrs a week! I get a paid a hefty 1.50/hr for being on call, time and a half for call back. My base pay is nearly $19/hr, which is about as much as I was making an hour when I left Michigan 7 yrs ago! I do get bene's, but the way the insurance co-pays are constantly going up I honestly think I have less spendable income than I did several years ago.

    I know - call the WAAAAHHmbulance!

    And Suzy Q- in answer to your question about why don't we all go work for agencies, I am beginning to wonder the same thing. Frankly, the reason I have not done so in the past was my own lack of self confidence. I wasn't sure that I could handle being constantly thrown into different environments. But after 13 yrs in L&D I think I am finally starting to get it!
