Now that I have my LPN license what kind of pay scale can I look forward to. I am centrally located between Effingham, Centralia, Vandalia. Are there places that should be avoided. any inside tips will be appreciated. I hope my first job as a nurse is pleasant.

Why not look into some of the places you did clinicals? Call and speak to their Nurse manager or DON,, maybe nursing administration. I must admit im surprised you didnt hear some of that as you went through school though, thats usually something openly discussed between classmates.

most of my classmates were closer to Salem and Mt Vernon and I was closer to Vandalia so they talked alot about places that I hadn't ever heard of. I wish I had clinicals closer to my home that would of give me a heads up.

It doesnt really matter, most places the pay for LPN is fairly equal give or take a few bucks.

I am in Peru - LaSalle area and was hired a year ago just out of LPN school as a Pediatric Home Health Nurse. They offer new grads $ 16.00/hour days and $ 16.50 for nights. This was the highest I found.
