I'm not interested in the money, it's just the curiosity. I am a nursing student in the making and have a general idea of how much NY nurses make but give in your stories.

Hourly/salary

benefits

what county

what kind of facility it is

what shift you work

full-time or part-time

Wow that's pretty good for an LPN … I think if nursing doesn't work out well than becoming an LPN might be my plan B.

Well for starters, an LPN *is* a nurse, and it's not something you should fall back on. LPNs are a valued part of the healthcare team, and a dying breed of skilled nurses.

To get to your question, it varies widely in NY, whether you work for a city hospital, are part of a unionized nursing hospital system, work nights, weekends, overtime, have your BSN, your certification in your specialty, etc. Just too many variables to list.

What do you think the "N" stands for. They are nurses.Being an LPN is not a consolation prize for people that fail at getting their RN. LPN programs are challenging and LPNs are skilled nurses.

Sorry I didn't mean to offend you @Loriangel14, where I'm from l, I see a bunch of LPNs going back to school because they say that they are trying to get their Rn. Also I go to a community college that only offers an associate's in it so that later on you can transfer to get your Bsn, and the nursing program consists of 4 brutal nursing classes. When I went for the informational session on the program, they said that Lpns only skip the first nursing class out of 4, that's why I didn't think much of it. Also since it's just for an associates. But I never said that they werent important, I believe every position plays an important role.

My hospital is gradually phasing out LPN's in the inpatient setting. Three of them just went back for their RN degree to ensure their positions. While LPN's may be a "dying breed," there are reasons for it.

For new grads with no experience the range in suffolk for me/my classmates has ranged from 33-36.51/hr for days and 35.50-40$/hr for nights before any certifications/icu etc

Benefits can also range from 0-130$ a check depending on if youre single/married and if you want an epo/ppo

Im single with an epo and I never pay anything ever in network

(also new grads almost never get hired part time)

interviewed for a homecare institution.

starting pay: $73,000. $1000 for each year of RN experience, extra $1000 for BSN, extra($???) for certification. not a bad deal.
