Salary for Colorado Springs

Specializes in LPN. Has 10 years experience.

I am a LPN with a tentative offer for a position in Colorado Springs. The salary for the position is $42,000 a year. I feel that is low for someone with almost 10 years experience. I am curious what other nurses are making in the area. I am thinking about asking for more but want a ball park of what the average in the area is first.

What type of position? Is it a supervisory role? Salaried? In general Co. Springs area doesn’t pay well. I used to live in Denver and only home health pays well up there.


Yes, what kind of role? I am in CA working in a community health clinic as LVN supervisor making 71,000 per year. I have been a nurse for 11 years. Most LVNs in clinics around here make 26-31 per hour.
