    Chicago suburbs, LPN starting pay is $27.75 and they are always hiring for nurses, due to the location, 30 minutes from the city, but the facility is in a nice area.

    I'm a new grad LPN making 22.50 an hour. This is the most money I've ever made in my life so I'm very happy.
    Hello. Can you tell me where you are from? That is a good starting pay. I have been a LPN for 15 and I make 21.15. Please let me know. Thank you.

    That's awesome. I started at $22.72 and within a year it went up to $23.70. Not including shift diff. And I am part time with benefits. This is in Alberta, Canada though. The highest wage for LPN here is about $31.00 which I think is starting wage for RNs

    I am moving to Canada. Good pay.

    Ok, so I'm completely disgusted! I've been an LPN for 5 years and I make $17/hr then an additional $3/hr for nightshift in a hospital!!! And, I'm the highest paid LPN on my nights... I live 60min north of Atlanta, GA. That's great for you all who are making such high hourly rates...I just wish I was one of you!!

    I gather you work at the same company for 5 years? I know the feeling. It sucks because the new hire earns more than you do since current starting rate is higher. Apply at a another facility and I am sure you can get more with your experience.

    NYC-ALF- $28 per hour - no shift diff- no benefits. But there is OT after 40.
    Oh yeah, I was a new grad with no experience in nursing.

    I live in NY, not in the city, but upstate and as far as I know from looking for jobs, that's the going rate in these parts. about 25-26 /hr with differentials up to 35 for overnights.
    Where in Upstate NY is that? I graduated and worked in NY and never made that kind of money, maybe I should have moved to where you lived lol
