Specializes in Dialysis. Has 6 years experience.

Long Island, NY here working in dialysis for four years. When I first started, I was paid $22.25. All of my other offers were high 20s, but part-time/per diem, and I needed benefits. Now I'm at $28.50. I decided to go for the preceptor position. I'm constantly training anyway. So I'll be at about $30/hr. I'm waiting for this program to get back to me because I don't see myself working as an LPN for more than a couple of years from now. As others have said, definitely consider a bridge program ASAP.

Suburban Massachusetts- new grad LPN. Base pay $28/hr. $6/hr shift diff on weekends brings me up to $34/hr. I work at one of the better paying places, I think.

Agency LPNs get about $45/hr!! I see ads saying that agency LPNs only need 4 months of experience, which I think is not enough. They need to be experienced enough to go into new facilities and hit the ground running.

Bottom line- there is decent $$ to be made as an LPN around here.

I work in a nursing home per diem at $34/hr, and I start my new job in a family practice doctor's office soon at $22/hr, that is with my almost 3 years of experience. (She put me in at 4 years, though). I'm in Massachusetts.

Hi Lynker, that's a big pay difference! I have heard that doctor's offices pay less but because the hours are great, no weekends or holidays, and it's relatively "clean" work compared to SNF.

Yeah exactly! That's why I wanna try it 🙂 I love LTC/SNF, but I want something less hands on.

Good morning, do you ever work contract nursing jobs, they pay very well. With your experience you deserve a higher pay rate. You are right about the cost of living, everything is so costly.

What website resource can I find contract nursing jobs?

I live in New Hampshire, and I work in home health making between $29-$35 hourly depending on the case

In a SNF with no experience I made $33 hourly

There seems to be an LPN shortage in VA. I have been trying to hire at my facilities across VA for the past year with little to no response to job postings. I was just wondering if VA has fewer LPNs than other states?
