TheCommuter, BSN, RN

Specializes in Case mgmt., rehab, (CRRN), LTC & psych. Has 14 years experience.

I earned my RN license a few months ago, and had been working as an LPN/LVN for 4 years. My most recent LPN/LVN wage was at a dumpy nursing home for $27.04 hourly in June 2010. I am in Fort Worth, Texas.

Most facilities in my area will pay an LVN anywhere from $17 to $25 hourly. Hospitals and doctors' offices offer the lowest pay, while nursing homes, home health, private duty, hospice and agency pay competitively.

Well, I tell you what, I'm southeast Ga (Savannah) and the lpns get paid pretty low here. It's crazy that southern IN and ky get paid pretty highly compared to GA when GA has a higher cost of living.

Oh, I'm originally from Lexington, and I remember lpn's getting paid pretty decent too. Here, they start out at 14 with no experience at a nursing home, hospital 13. I'm definitely going to have to move!!!

Kansas City metro area

$20.00 per hour, expecting a 2-4% raise for my one year anniversary any time now. Very nice, new, and respected long term care facility, nurse/pt ratio 1:16, benefits but not differentials.

about 1 year, 10 months experience.

AZMOMO2

Specializes in Cardiac Care.

1:16? Is that meds and treatments only or total care w/o a CNA?

I make 20/hr.

8 months of experience.

I work for a DME company, so I've got great 8-4:30 hours w/ no weekends.

located in N. Maryland

After months and months of searching for a job ( my old LPN job was at a hospital and the other nurses caused me too much stress, and I REFUSE to work LTC!) I feel like I lucked out. I want to stay here forever!!!!

Yes there are CNAs. I do meds, treatments, average of 1 to 3 med-A patients, all other nursing tasks (rarely an iv, no more than 1 or 2 g-tubes, no trachs). There is 32 patients capacity total, so two nurses on day and eve, one at noc. 4 CNAs during the day, 3 in the evening, 2 at noc.

17.25 per hour. plus .75 for midnight differential. .50 for weekend differential and 3.00 for covering for a call off weekend (2.00 or weekday).

Location: Central Illinois...2 hours south of Chicago.
