there have probably been a million threads asking this same question, but I'm looking for some specific answers because I'm so confused by what I've researched thus far.I know that your pay rate, whatever kind of nurse you are, hugely depends on what city and state you happen to work in. obviously, i live and am going to be working in Mass. so, that being said, I appologize in advance if this is the one billionth time you come across a thread asking this very same question BUT...how much is the starting pay rate in Mass for LPNs? yes, it depends on some things, but how much is not enough and how much is right? I hear a lot of people complain about their salaries and others who say nurses make really great money. And I've talked to a few LPNs who say they make 13 bucks an hour and others who claim to make 25 an hour and have only been a nurse for like a year! it's so confusing...any help?
