    Where I work the LPNs and the CNAs are in the same union. The union contract says the LPNs can and will fill CNA holes in staffing as needed. We are told this when hired.

They top out at 20.00 an hour. And most of them make that since most of them have been here over 10 years. This may be different from other LTCs.
