Easy advice. Focus on your studies. Finding a job right out is rare in the current market. People who find jobs immediately, from my experience, tend to be those who worked in the same hospital already and just switched units/positions.

Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) Salary

Pay shouldn't be a consideration at this point. Nursing won't make you rich but you'll be plenty able to support yourself and save a little too (depending on how you budget). I included the link in case you still want to know. The LPN information is at the bottom of the page.
