    Northwest Georgia starting pay for a new LPN w/ no experience is....
    $12.25/hr Base Rate: Hospital
    $14-17/hr Base Rate: Nursing Home
    $10-12/hr Base Rate: Doctor's Office

    The shift differentials are what really help you out around here. Some new LPN's make $21.00/hr if they are willing to work ONLY weekend nights, like a 60/80 shift.

    12.50 as a LVN wage. That;s a shame. Doesn't McDonalds pay about that these days?
    Actually, McDonald's pays minimum wage.

    I refuse to work for $12.50 hourly, which is why I will stay away from the acute care hospitals around here.

    Actually, the Los Angeles area pays crappy LVN hospital wages, too. I completed a Los Angeles LVN program in late 2005, and the hospitals were offering low wages when you consider the cost of living. Kaiser Hospital was offering $17 hourly, Olive View Medical Center was offering a monthly salary of $2550 monthly, and Northeast Valley Health Center offered $15 hourly.

    I guess it all depends on where you live and the cost of living for your area. I live in Savannah, GA (not a very big city at all) and $12.50 sounds pretty good to me but I don't even know if they pay that much here. I guess the good thing is that if they pay more I'll be happy but if not I won't be disappointed. :wink2:

    I am surprised that detroit pays that much for new grads. How is the cost of living? There was a special on television recently about the outrageous number of foreclosures in the area.

    But wait I see some wages that are like 12/hr thats not that great. I guess nursing homes pay the best for lpns,huh?
