My 25 year old niece is moving from Indiana to AZ in the next couple of weeks. She was a CNA in Indiana but it lapsed while she stayed home with her kids for a couple of years.
Does anyone know if there are any AZ hospitals that will allow you to work in some capacity lower than CNA then help you with classes to reinstate a lapsed license? She says where she's from the hospitals will pay for classes while you work for them.
If not, where would be a good place to go to get the CNA reinstated and how much?
One more question - I'm not in the medical field and have no idea about salaries. What is the pay range in AZ for a non-CNA job as well as for a CNA? Just trying to get an idea of what she'll be able to afford as far as her apartment.
Sorry for so many questions!! I'm so glad to find this message board - any info would help.
