LPN - Wages and Trends

Wages vary based on the LPN's experience. Wages also vary by area of the country and employer. For example, LPNs who work in home health care services tend to earn more than those who work in doctors' offices.

Benefits also vary by employer. Most full-time LPNs receive typical benefits. These include paid vacation, sick leave, and health insurance. Part-time LPNs rarely receive benefits.
