    Just got hired (after 10 years away from nursing - so am treated as GN) in adolescent psych. I am in the midwest. Base is $20/hr with $3.25 night diff and $2 weekend/holiday diff. I will be working PT nights.

    I make $18 as a new grad LPN. A bit lower than LTC facilities in this area.

    For you guys who want your co-workers to have experience....please give us newbies a chance. There was a time when you didn't have experience in psych either. I know I'm wet behind the ears & I am very grateful I have wonderful RN's to work under who guide & teach me. I love this field.

    Just curious, is this with health benefits or per diem?
