    I did that for 8 years before I became a nurse and I loved it.I did little housework, mostly provided personal care to elderly and handicapped.

    Thanks so much for the input! I'm not so nervous now at applying for Home Health Aide positions!

    My one friend works in brewery and gets paid $18.50/hr to watch the bottle line and just pull off broken or fallen bottles. That's it. Now compare that to ALLLL the work CNAs do and look at that pay.

    What's wrong with this picture?
    Nothing at all wrong. Go try and do that brewery job and count how long before you lose your freaking marbles. The truth is that jobs like the one your bottle watching friend has are disappearing fast.

    The other thing to think about is what we as a society are willing to pay for. Take a gander at ALLL the money we (as a country) are willing to spend on beer, then take a look at what we are willing to spend on taking care of the elderly and disabled.

    Beer comes way first.

    I JUST got hired at hospital for my first CNA job on a med/surg floor.

    With no experience, it's $12.49/hr. It's 3rd shift though, so I get a $2.50 differential and on weekends I get an extra $1.50

    With experience it's more like $14 and change an hour, plus any differentials. Low, yes, but higher than most nursing homes. I've interviewed at places that were barely $10/hr!!!!

    This is in Rhode Island

    Yeah ain't that sad but true! Even people who are broke and can't pay rent will still somehow find money for booze.

    I've done work similar to his for 5 years and I did lose my marbles. You are right when you say manufacturing jobs are disappearing though. Heck ALL jobs seem to be disappearing. I remember about 7 years ago in my area the hospitals were begging and pleading for RN's, LPN's and CNA's. Huge bonuses, great benefits and often they would reimburse your tuition no matter where you went to school. The help wanted ads were at least 3 full pages of health care jobs!

    Today I looked in the paper and saw two: Around the Clock Nursing and Bayada Nurses. That's it

    With shift differentials, that's more than some nurses make around here, and not by ANY means low. Just sayin'.

    There has to be a better way to care for the elderly and disabled. I did my second/third(?) Clinical tonight - Very hands on - Showering, changing briefs, feeding, etc.
    Honestly? I - Hate - it. And can't even imagine just working as a CNA for a year to get my "feet wet."

    For the same amount of money, I'd rather work at Walmart restocking shelves.
