Posted

If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great. I am a new dialysis LPN, but not knew to dialysis with 8 years of both acute and chronic experience. I am working on earning a ACLS, PALS, and IV cert. I am interested in working in acute dialysis. I am lucky enough to live in an area that hires acute lpn's. I have check with payscale, salary, indeed, monster, glassdoor, and careerbuilder to try to to get a ball park of what range I should have in mind when it comes to salary negotiations. Can anyone here help with a website or any information that can give me a ball park? Thanks so much!

In South Carolina, LPN chronic with 25 years experience making about $20/hr. and that's completely capped out...

Thank NurseRies! I'm in Maryland. That's how I make as a technician. I think it's ridiculous the wide variations in the salary. I have family in South Carolina so I know a little about the cost of living. I think you still should be making more being that it is a specialty and you have so much experience.
