Fortunately, my scale is further to the right because of experience, but I cannot imagine working as a new LVN on a Med-Surg unit for $13 plus change! Good Luck in the job search.Finally someone tells the truth. The LPN pay rates offered by the hospitals are absolutely pitiful around here. In addition, hospital work is harder with a more demanding pace. I am not putting my license on the line for a measly pay rate of $12.50 or $13 per hour when I can earn $20 hourly at a nursing home.
I will work at a hospital after I earn my RN license. However, working at a hospital as an LVN is not worth it to me at this time.
