    Anyone from South Carolina? I"ll be moving there shortly.

    Pay in southern California in a snf is terrible. I started out making 14.00 an hour on the swing and noc shifts. LVNs do everything here except iv meds and messing with picc and central lines. It's terrible....A new admit will throw your med pass way off! I had 30 patients on the swing shift and 59 on the noc shift. I worked at another place for a short time and they started me at 17.00 an hour... I didn't have to admit people, but the care was horrendous there and I did not want any part of it.

    hey all, i work part time, no benies. pay is the same with benies and being full time. i get 15/hr base pay-that's with 8 years experience. don't like my small town hosp! i think starting is like 13 or 14 in the hosp, no idea what ltc pays. anyway, most i ever made was on a per diem required to work full time contract in new hamp, base was like 17.5 with good diff.

    I live in south central va, nursing homes pay anywhere from 17-22 an hour. The hospital is at 14-15 an hour, and Dr. office is lower than that, but I guess with the weekends off you can be choosy?

    I'm in Arkansas and I make 18.52/hr.
    But I've been on this job for 25 years and I'm topped out.
    I do have great benefits.
    The starting pay is around 14, I think, where I work, and depending on experience the new hires bring with them.
    Nursing homes are paying around 14 and 15/hr. About 9 or 10 months ago I was offered some part time work at one of the local nursing homes and was going to get 15.50, just because they needed nurses so bad, and the administrator knew me from another job.
    I decided not to take it, I was tired from working two jobs already.

    Im in Mass. Management position in LTC. With the same company for 14 yrs. Currently making a bit over 25.00 an hour. I believe that LPN's are starting at our facility for 16-17 depending on experience.

    most out here in California start out @ 16.00-19.00. depends wether your in a small h.m.o. or a huge h.m.o. lots of "Depends upon". we are big into multi-tasking. meaning you are not only doing your work but a little of everyone else job nothing to do with what you are licensed to do.

    I live in California now, and am not really sure what LPNs are making. I was surprised in reading my hometown newspaper, which is from a little town in western PA with very low housing costs, that the county owned LTC pays a starting rate of $23. I'm not sure that they start at any more than that here, where $23 an hour is barely enough to cover living expenses.

    I live in a small town in Georgia and make $14.00/hr in a doctors office. I will soon get health insurance, profit sharing, and retirement benefits. Oh, and I'm supposed to be due for a HUGE raise next month. All in all with weekends and evenings off, I can't complain!
