Can anyone give me an idea of what an LVN makes in San Antonio on the average?

It depends on where you work and the responsibilities that go with the job. It can be from $10.00 an hour to $40.00 an hour oe more. Lots of variables.

Being an LVN is one of the better paying jobs here when compared to our low cost of living.

I don't know if you're moving to San Antonio or if you are a new grad, but the Methodist Hospital system is phasing out LVNs. Some are going back to school for RN though. So, it will be an all RN hospital system within the next 2 years, but unfortunately with the same horrible staffing issues. We are working more with less staff due to "the budget", as our director likes to remind us. Less staff with the same demanding patients and family members.

I understand these hospitals doing that for "Magnet" status but isnt that just spreading it a little thin for RNs? I would think having LVNs around to take stats and stuff could free up RNs for other things.

^^^ Like A&M Wag said : it's all about budget.

They do not do team leading at Methodist where the RN and LVN work together as a team on a shared group of patients. The LVN has her separate load of patients as well as the RN. The only hospital with Magnet status in this city is University.

LVNs making 40.00 is a joke, maybe 15.00. They need to be phased out, get their RN or BSN........they really are just scut monkeys playing important, love to tell them, room so and so, M/M needs a bath....and in surgery, they are the ones counting cotton gauze, syringes, needles........yes, I am an MD, so I know these things.

LOL, Karl B.--you may be an "MD", but you don't know very much. I'm an LVN with 23 years experience, making $24/hour in home health. That being said, I am planning to go back to school for my RN soon simply because I feel as if I've reached the top of my earning potential as an LVN.
