Starting pay for a new LPN


I have no clue what the starting pay range for brand new lpns is.... I know it varies by area and type of facility but can anybody give me an idea?


Specializes in CNA/LPN. Has 1 years experience.

For the state of Georgia, going by the sites I've been on that average it out, it is estimated to be around $14.91 @ an hourly rate and around $25,000 annually.

Below is also the median hourly rate by experience.

> 1 year: $15.95, 1-4 years: $17.25, 5-9 years: $19.76, > 10+ years: $19.85
