    right now i make $17.78 where i work. that was what i was hired in at. that's actually pretty good for around here. in the hospital i would start out at about $12.50. that's ridiculous to me.

    I am going back to school because honestly more education is the only way to increase your desire to continue to work in the medical field and pay. I want to give more but Iam limited with a lpn license

    I underarand your statement about lpn's not doing the samething as RN's because of our scope of practice which vary in each state but I am confident and competent with my practice as a LPN. I am a vauable resource to my team which include doctor's,NP's,PA's,and RN's. We're a team that work together to provide quality care to our community!!! It's not your title that makes it's the person that makes the title!!!

    I live in Nebraska. When I started as an LPN, I was making $8.25/hr. I was hired at the job I'm now at five years ago with a starting salary of 15.25. I now am making about 19.00/hr. From what I read, I'm extremely grateful.
