WOW! I know this is two years late to reply but these rates are crazy! I live in ny and I know cost of living is high here but RN's make min of $40/hr. That's through an agency. Most RN's I know get jobs on their own...$75/hr. Hospitals pay about $45/hr with benefits. I guess it pays to be an RN in ny!

I just graduated as an LPN and got hired for private duty nursing. I am making $19/hour with a permanent case. 3-12h shifts. Not an extremely highly skilled shift, so in my small rural town in TN I was happy to get this. The nursing home pays only $14 and the hospital no longer hires LPNs. Also, with having 3 set shifts, I can do PRN with this company or elsewhere. Seems awesome at this point.

I'm an rn with 1 year experience working ltc in michigan. I took a job in home health working peds 1 patient on vent and feeding tube for 21/ hr. Not great pay but I'm working pt flexible hours with no benifits. I'm learning a lot. I couldn't take the nursing home patient load, never a break and working at a dead run to get it all done. Sofar I'm happy with my choice.

In Florida, some agencies only offer $15 an hour for LPN's. You are lucky if you can find agencies that pay LPN's $18-20 an hour.
