Salary....RPN vs RN

  1. For some reason I cant find any salary info for RPN's in Ontario.....does anyone know? I know the RN grid, and would like to compare it to RPN.

    I don't think RPN pay is as regulated as RN. I was told that at hospitals the pay for RPN is aroun $18-$21/hr; but if you work outside a hospital the pay varies widely. You could try checking out job postings maybe to get the information.

    The rate varies depending on the hospital, but there are some up to $24.00 an hour at the top rate.

    I work in a long term care facility in Toronto. A fresh new RPN makes about $18 an hour, but I hear hospitals pay better than long term care facilities.
