- Jan 31, '09 by cute-1Quote from rancelumsdenMy Chicago experience has been different.Starting salaries in Chicago are between 10-15,LTC pays the most and the hospitals pay the least.My Home care agency pays from 11-18 for CNA's and the Hospice pays 16 too....The suburbs usually pay more and offer shift differentials like an extra 3 bucks on weekends and an extra 2 on Overnight shifts.There is no average. If you look on the forum, past questions for the last 6 months, you'll see this question asked all the time. It depends on your general region, state, if rural or city, and the demand. I've seen started pay rates around $7.00 up to around $12.
In the Chicago area, it's around $8 -$9 to start. Downstate Illinois, it's less. Some of the far western and eastern states are significantly higher, but their cost-of-living is much higher.
Someone may be able to answer if you give your city/state.
Also, as a generalization, assisted living pays the least, LTC next, hospital the highest, and home health towards the lower end (again, as a generalization).
By the way, the 'standard' response for desired rate of pay is "open". The LTC sets the rates according to their schedule, not yours.......

- Feb 1, '09 by stelonQuote from samsam22I started with no experience at 11.00 an hour in CA. I've been there over a year now and we just got a raise--not because of experience, but to better meet what other places are paying. 11.75 now, and with the annual review raise if I get the max amount I'll barely be above 12.00. Count your lucky stars you started at 12.50, though I've heard a well known hospital closer to LA starts their aids at $19-$21 an hour. Super hard to get in though.I work in a hospital here in california and i started with no experience i make 12.50 a hour... ive been working there for 4 months now and i hope i get a raise soon O.o

- Feb 2, '09 by achapmanI live in Connecticut and I make $16.00/hr. I work at a hospital in New Haven.
- Feb 5, '09 by TheRicanPrincess18I live in Niagara Falls, NY...0 experience (newly certified ) but i just hired at the hospital near my house, the hospital has a nursing home within it, I'm starting at $10.71/hour with a .38 shift diff. Got benes and all that good stuff, I'm just kindal disappointed because in about 3 months after I get off probation I'm going to put in a bid to get transferred to the hospital side(doing float shift in er,medi/surgi, and icu) and I just found out the starting is one .01 higher..but the hospital side offers 100% tuiton assistance for FT cna's so that made me pretty happy!
