    I just got hired at hospital in Ozaukee county WI. 0 experience, had to get my BLS certification which only took 1 day. Im starting at 10.48 per hour, full medical and dental benefits, 401K, tuition reimbursement, PTO. For PM shifts I get a extra $1 more an hour, for weekend shifts I get a extra $2 a hour. They are very flexible with working around my school schedule and I will be working on the med/surg floor. I am very excited and very happy, I really wanted to get into a hospital and am glad they were willing to take a chance on me. I will be working PT which is perfect since I am taking Microbiology and A & P 2 this fall. Orientation in 2 weeks!

    In Jacksonville, FL, I started at St. Vincent's in April '08 at 9.76/hour

    And that was starting with no experience in the medical field!
    Ok, so do they accept and actually hire people without exp. in the field? I just got certified as a CNA and I am looking for a job but everything wants exp. If you have any info on places hiring for CNA or good places to get exp at let me know!

    I became Florida certified this past March and have found that nearly all home health agencies I've contacted are looking for CNA's whether they are new grads or not. Do a google search on home health care in your area.

    In Oregon the min wage is $8.40 an hour and even an unlicensed, but trained NA will get at least $9, but a beginning CNA at least $10.

    I don't know of any hospitals or docs who hire CNAs, only LTC or nursing facilities, so the rate is $10-$12 depending on you and where their funding comes from.

    We have a CNA2 category here where once you are licensed as a CNA, you take a further course in a hospital setting. Those start $12-$14. They are not trained for blood draws in the course as outlined by the state, but the are allowed to be trained by their hospital to do so is my understanding. Or let's put it this way: if you're in the hospital, it's likely that a CNA2 will be drawing your blood, but no CNA 2 I've spoken to teaches it. Clear as mud, right?

    That's good though here some will start you at 14+ but it all depends on your experience. Good luck with your new job

    So for home health aids what exactly do you do? Is it weird going to their homes and stuff? any other suggestions? Thank you!!
