Depends on experience & location. Also the company.

like the previous person said, it depends on where you work. I've been in ATL for 2 years and I was getting $20/hr at one facility working my behind off in a SNF/Rehab/LTC, and where I'm at now I started off at $17/hr and now I'm at $17.69 almost two years later in a retirement community working on their skilled floor. I have also worked at a assisted living facility PRN making $18.00/hr so it just depends.

So it's unrealistic to think that an Lpn could make $23-$24 in Atl? I'm bummed as me and my family are considering moving from Illinois to Atlanta. I Knew I would take a pay cut but 16-18 that's really low.

I have a cousin who's an LPN that lives about 30 minutes outside of Atlanta, but she commutes to work there in the city. She makes about $22 before taxes, and this is with 6 years of experience. If you don't live directly -in- Atlanta, you can make a decent middle class life if you live a little below your means. She has two children and a spouse that also earns a bit more than her, so that helps. They also have 0 debt aside from their house (they're HUGE Dave Ramsey fans haha).

Unrealistic to expect $23-$24/hour for LPN in Atlanta. Emory pays surprisingly low (I did a temp assignment in one of their medical offices--with 6 years experience in that specialty--for $13.64/hour with zero benefits. Not even employee discount on meals because I was a temp. Their offering for a permanent position was $17). I will give you a heads up--the largest allergy and asthma practice in the area (18 locations) pays rather well and only employs LPNs. Good luck and welcome to Atlanta!
