    I graduated in 2005 and started at 16.50 + 1.00 shift diff in LTC, I am still at the same facility and am up to 21.85 plus the dollar diff. I have interviewd a few places recently and no one seems to be paying over 18.00 right now. I also interviewed in a pediatricians office last summer, they offered 12.36! I had to say NO to that! the place I currently am at seems to be about the highest paying in my area right now so it looks as if I will be staying a little longer as I am not willing to take that much of a pay cut right now.:bowingpur

    Interested in knowing what the pay scale is in any and all areas of LVN employment in the DALLAS, TX area, esp. North Dallas. (New graduate). This will help me to know what sort of jobs/positions to apply for, or not to apply for! I appreciate your input.

    I started at $10.00 in 1981. I now make $22.00/hr. I do agency home health also at $24.00/hr. Oklahoma salary is based upon our cost of living also. But I believe all nurses should get paid more. I am considering moving to Canton Tx in the future.

    Quote from drbob1dc
    I work in the SF bay area(CA). I work in the ED at Kaiser Fremont and per diem at a Sutter Trauma hospital in Castro Valley. LVN's make 30-35 an hour in the acute care hospitals, less at ltc's. The sad news is this, LVN's in acute care are going the way of the dinosaur. Either by lay-off or attrition they are being reduced. RN's in the bay area are making 50-70 an hour,-perhaps the highest rate in the country. The good news is I will be an RN soon.
    What is the going the way of the dinosaur is how universities continue to
    sell their RN/BSN programs ...not by means of their own standing and merit, but by
    degrading LVN/LPN titles. Now that is old school.

    I just passed my boards a few months ago and got hired for my first LPN job at $17.60/hour plus shift differential @ a LTC facility. I am full time w/ benefits. This is in Dutchess County NY. The hourly rate would have been more if this wasn't my first nursing job. :heartbeat

    I'm from Northern California. I just graduated in Dec 2007 and got my first job at a Sub Acute Pediatric Facility. I've been working there for about 2 months now. The base pay for new grad LVN's at my facility is $23.75. You get 9% shift differential for working PM shift (my shift) and 12% for working NOC shift.
