You are reading page 3 of $12 an hour?!
I am an LPN in BC, Canada. We USED to make about $22.00 Cnd an hour (about $16 US). The government just cut our salaries by 15%...making around $19.00 hr Cnd. (About 13.OO US) The government imposed a contract making our work week longer, and the 15% wage cut. That contract covered LPN's, CNA's, housekeepers, laundry and kitchen workers, maintenance, etc. (RN's were not in the same union). I wonder....does that mean we can do 15% less work???? I wish.

I am definitely going to get my RN, sooner than later. I might have to do the Deaconess route, or the Excelsior not sure which yet, since waiting lists here are CRAZY and I have a husband and three children...only my husband's income. I was told Erie county has a bridge program for LPNs which I will look into if I can CLEP out of my last few prereqs.
There are places where RNs are paid $12.00 an hour.It depends on what area of the country that you are in and what type of nursing you do.

hell $12.00 :uhoh21:
Where on earth do they find RNs that will work for $12/hr???
That is disgraceful!
i graduated from school march, 12 2004. i began working with my temp permit at a long term care facility in phila pa on march 24. i started out @ 19.20 an hr. i passed my boards yesterday and will now make 20.63 11-7am shift, 3-11 is 23.57 and 7-3 is 19.70. if you interested philly is an excellent place for lpns to excel and make a decent living. most facilities are paying 19-25 an hr depending on the shift.

Salary.com lists LPN at $39,187 (which of course would not include differentials, as that is a benefit) and RN at $50,000, (which is $24-27/hr depending on whether it is based on 8 or 12 hour shifts) so this is probably correct.
Yes it does but thats for the 75th %ile .......the average is 36K ......i was responding to a new LPN grad saying they are going to make 42K out of the gate:stone Why become an RN when you can BANK as an LPN (which reequires less educatioin and less time.)
