Depending on where they live, licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) may earn more or less than the national average (LVNs are specific to California and Texas but fulfill the same duties). Differences in cost of living, the city and state, the health care setting, and the nurse’s experience determine salaries for LPNs.
For example, an LPN living in a metropolitan area will generally earn a higher salary because of the cost of transportation and housing. An LPN practicing in a rural area will earn less because the cost of living is less expensive. And Tenured or experienced LPNs will, of course, typically earn more than a new graduate LPN.
