    just got licensed as an LPN and was hired by agency to work in ambulatory clinic at $21.

    Upon graduation in June, got an offer to work in a top hospital as a GN for 30/hr -- roughly around 60K + if i work evenings or nites, additional $5,200 -- you're talking about starting 65K for a fresh grad with associate degree. Not bad at all.

    Only in NYC

    I live in Cincinnati,Oh. LPN's make between $17-21/hr on staff. If you go through an agency you can make $23-25/hr. in long term care. My friend just got a job at Christ Hospital and she makes $24.00/hr on evenings with her $4.00/ hr shift diff. She is on a m/s unit if she would have gone on tele she could have also gotten a $30,000 sign-on bonus paid over three years for a three yr commitment. I make 26/hr on staff currently as an RN and through the agency I make from $33-45/hr for hospital and $30-35/hr in LTC. We have good rates in Cincinnati. I believe that Covington is getting better with there rates.
    Good Luck!

    I know of a company that has positions open all over the Us and they are negotiating decent wages for their hires. They are always looking for PICU and NICU nurses I guess with that excellent level of care you guys give lends to the demand for you. If you are intersted in hearing more about this send me a personal email to

    in chicago, most new RN's base pay is 21.50-22.00. some of the shift diffs are any where from $3-$6. down state illinois pays alot less, like $16-$17 because its a more rural area and cheaper to live.

    Here in Oklahoma the starting pay is $17/hr, most nurses make more than that though with weekend, night, etc differential and it depends on what hospital you work for. If you work for an agency or per diem you will make over $30/hr as an RN. The cost of living here is one of the lowest in the nation as well

    i am not an RN or a LPN as a matter of fact i am not even in the medical feild but LPN in honolulu hawaii get about $12-$15 per hour. and RN's get about $21-$23 per hour.

    most hospitals in hawaii are unionized so if your a RN and have worked for one hospital for about 2-3 years your pay from $23 jumps to $27per hour in 2-3 years of commitment. in about 5 eyars with teh same hospital you can make upt to $32 per hour.
