    The LPN pay scale here in NE Pennsylvania is all over the board.

    The hourly rate at the hospitals ranges from approximately $13.00 to $15.00 depending upon which one you work at. The nursing homes start at $15.00 and go to $18.00.

    I'm currently working at the VA making $21.18/hour.
    I have a few questions for you about the VA. I did hear that they pay LPNs pretty well and am considering them for myself at a later date (but in New York City). What are your responsibilities? What is nurse patient ratio? What are their shifts like? Thanks!

    I recently graduated here in California and I got 2 jobs. One is as an intake nurse at a home health agency. The rate is $22/hour. It's an easy peasy job. My other job is at a SNF for $27/hour. Also not signing up for benefits make your hourly rate higher. I get benefits from my home health agency job and I declined benefits on the other job.
