I have just recently moved to Arkansas due to a nasty divorce. I am living in the NE Arkansas area around Pocahontas/Ravenden Springs and wondered what would the CNA's in this area make? I am looking at getting a job at a trucking company for $10.00 an hour plus bonuses. Would getting my CNA cert. be worth it as opposed to this pay? I am really leaning towards the CNA route, it would make it easier to get my pre-req classes in. I could really use some advice, I have been wracking my brain and coming up more confused. The school in Pocahontas says that the CNA course is ineligible for financial aid, which sucks because I have a Pell Grant.
