First job at a Rehab Hospital w/LTC (they operate two separate facilities under one roof with both a LTC and Specialty Hospital licenses) on the outskirts of the metro area was $9.37/hr for PT weekdays.
2nd job offer is likely going to be $11/hour for PT weekend days and weekdays PRN at $10/hr.
And a spot on Family Med floor at a learning hospital I'm interviewing for has a base pay of $10.45/hour FT.
All of them have shift diffs. Not sure what they all are exactly yet.

If you hate being an aide and have other options for similar pay, there's no point in making yourself miserable.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.
Those of us who stick around are not doing it for the money, that's for sure. I hate working retail, food service, with the public in general, with a burning passion. Yes, being an aide is much harder work, but I'd take it over any of those jobs in a heartbeat. And that's why I keep doing it, despite the fact that I can barely get by financially.

To be a CNA means you do have several options-take three jobs and then go on with the ones you like the most and pays the most. Medical is nice - also a business of pay a choice of working in a good progressive envoirment.
