New grad Northern IL LPN & RN

LTC Lpn 20.00 RN 24.00

Shift dif .50 p/h, holidays double time

OT time & 1/2

My friend is a 1 yr LPN at a LTC in Indianapolis and they started her off at 21

I guess that LTC institution that I quoted pays under the average, huh? I tried asking if it's negotiable but they responded that it's a fixed rate.

From my experience: (All RN)

AREA: Northern IN

Field: LTC

Base rate: 18.25 for FT, 23.00 for PRN

And at a local hospital, they start nurses out around $17 (some lower, some higher) and the pay increases for PRN based on a tier schedule. So $8 more an hour if a PRN works 3 shifts per two week schedule, or $10 more an hour for 4 shifts per a 2 week schedule.
