I was at school today talking to an old friend who is in the LPN program. He's about 1/2 a year ahead of me. Anyhow, one of the old graduates came in and spoke to his class about the nursing field / life as an LPN. The guy is working in Atlanta at a hospital (I believe he said hospital). The guy said he makes $12.50 p/hr and $1.50 more if working night shift. Here's what really blew my mind: If he is called in on a day off or works a day not scheduled he gets $10 more p/hr. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> Is this possible? Is he with a good employer or is this how it goes for nurses? It seems the 3 - 12 hour shifts are pretty popular and I'm hoping this overtime time is as well Thanks for any input! I do realize he's in a big city and do not expect this in Savannah where I am located at this time. I do plan to get down to Orlando after getting experience and some $$ saved.
