I hope that this isn't a trend because I have quite a few top notch RN's working on cases that are not what could be considered 'high tech'. It would not benefit the agency choose to use LPN's only because they are reimbursed accordingly. The reimbursement rate is higher for RN's but so is the pay rate I have to pay them. So in the end, it shakes out the same.

I am an LPN who gets reimbursed thru Medicaid - & the case I have does NOT pay for an RN - so I can only assume if an RN wanted the case they'd get LPN pay. The case is comparatively easy.

Agencies who pay RNs more than they pay their LPNs to work the same case, make up the difference from their operating revenue. Not unheard of.

i am a private duty rn in wisconsin working for medicaid/badgercare. for the last year, we have been hearing rumors of budget cuts. they already cut out the few hundred bucks extra a month for the case coordinator.

we are able to work no more than 12 hours/day, 60 hours a week. there has been talk that if you are an rn, you will be paid the standard $30+/hour rate for up to 8 hours but if you work a 12 hour shift, your pay will go down to $20+ (lpn wages) for the final 4 hours of the shift. i certainly hope that this doesn't come true but its been rumored for about a year now. its bad enuf they took away coordinator reimbursement. that's alot of paperwork!!

us rns do get the same standard pay rate for vent as well as non-vent patients.

does anyone know where to look online to find out what's really going on and the truth behind what budget cuts are in store for us? again, i live in wisconsin.
