    LPN's are making alot more than I am with my 2.5 years experience. Good for them but times are tough for my family. I make 18/hour. I have been told that NP's only make 45k around here. Sorry, but I can't live on that anymore. Too much responsibility for too little $$. I have been told that is why there are no PA's here. They will not settle for this pay. Could be true because I do not know any PA's. NP's staff the ER most of the time. BUT there is no industry here and everyone is medicaid or the working non insured. I will probably have to move but in the end who takes care of these people?

    I make about 14.50/ hr working in a middle school in southcentral PA. Great scehdule, even greater benefits- only $15/ month! I get paid all year 'round but the downside is it's like working pt because the checks are cut to compensate for not working over the summer. Hoping to switch to a DR office (interview's tomorrow!), where I would be making $17 an hour and working all year long. It would be a nice boost in pay!

    I'm not sure who posted that Alberta was the lowest paid province....in NB I'm making 21.83...with benefits, I believe it's 23.87 in the nursing homes no benefits ( casual) and I do believe the casuals in the hospital just took a pay cut if I'm not mistaken...slightly under 20 but they now accrue hours and get benefits after x amount. It's a flat rate, 21.83, all LPN's get paid that straight across the board....I've never heard of anyone making more than that, except as management in some private facilites.

    It's kind of bologna right now, as LPN's are now going to school for two full years and practicing to their full scope. The LPN's without 2 years of school had to go back and further their education or they weren't able to renew their licenses. They widened our scope, then put a wage freeze on. Tell me of any other career, job, profession where you are told " hey, you need to go back to school, your job description is going to increase, but, nope, your pay won't".

    Also, did I mention, PSW's make a couple of dollars less an hour....which is great, ( I mean that, they deserve at least that, I feel it should be more) however, they do not have half the responsibility an LPN has, especially in LTC. But, as it stands now, the psw working along side of me who doesn't get benefits makes 45 cents less an hour than I do.

    So you can see why some LPN's in NB are choosing not to renew their license and work as PSW's....no association dues, less responsibility and not much difference in their pay cheques.
