    I've been an LPN for 9yrs, I work in LTC and currently make $17/hr, but i work 3 twelve hour shifts a week (36hrs) and get paid for 44hrs. BUT this is only because I work every Sat & Sun and then one day during the week. My best friend is an LPN with the same experience as i have, working one town over at a LTC facility making $14/hr, working the 3 twelves, but only getting paid for the 36hrs she works. Staffing agencies pay a little more, some as much as $23-26, and as little as $16 but that depends on where they send you and your experience. The cost of living in the rural parts of eastern KY is really cheap, though, 7compared to lots of places.

    i'm working at a hospital in las vegas. my base pay is 22.47 an hour. i'm full time with good benefits.

    I heard that Las Vegas cost of living is high is that true? Do Las Vegas really build a new street and school every week? Is the crime low?

    What do RN makes if LPN is so high as 22.47? :redlight:

    Does anyone work in a state facility? I am curious about what I can expect working at a state psychiatric facility. I probably would work there anyway if offered a position, regardless of pay (within reason) but I would like an idea anyway. Any ideas?

    I work for the State of Missouri in a LTC veterans psychiatric facility. I currently make $17.10 as an LPN. The pay seems about average when reading others but the state benefits certainly add to it with good health insurance, and retirement plans. I encourage you to go for it. The rewards i get every day from my patients certainly make up for any lack of monetary compensation I might get elsewhere.
