    I'm in central Louisiana, near Lafayette area, i've been an LPN 4 yrs. I work for a nursing home at nites. I have 58 patients and make 18.50 an hr.
    The most i've made as an LPN was 36 hr working on my day off at our local hosp. they discourage agency so they will pay their lpns, time and a half plus 8 dollars if they come on in on their off days, the same hosp, wanted to start me off at 10.00 an hr as a new nurse but I turned down benefits and was offered 14.50 an hour.
    I have also made 25.00 and hour working for agencies in the past.

    New LVNs earn between $18-$20 to start in houston. Through temp agencies and home health you can make anywhere $24/hr to $35/hr depending on the agency and the complexity of the cases you will be handling

    I lived in Richmond Va. the nursing homes pay more than the hospitals here I make 17.50 base on experience as a new nurse at a nursing home. Less than 6 months to a year. A lot of the hospital don't usually hire new LPN. A lot of the places here pay you more base on your experience. Agency starts at 21-27 depending on where you go.

    When you work for an agency, can you still get benefits? I see the pay is much higher with an agency. Are there drawbacks to working for an agency?

    I'm 8 miles north of Boston and I make 24/hr on the day shift. My co offers a shift diff of 3$/hr after 3 and on weekends. If you go closer to the city you might make 26/27 an hour. I've made 26$/hr in the past but the money wasn't worth the hell hole I was in. Looks like I'm never moving to Oklahoma. 11 bucks an hour?!?!? Thats insane!
