    I'm in Wisconsin and work in a hospital. I make 14.00 hourly, 3.30 for working NOCS, and 3.00 for working weekend program. So 20.30 an hour since I only work weekends.

    Kbites, what hospital are you working for? I will be getting certified in the next few months, and would prefer working in a hospital.

    Was this at a hospital or a LTC? I just got my CNA cert today and have been looking at jobs at hospitals.

    Hi, I live in Providence, RI and I was justed hired for LTC 3rd shift. They offered me $11 an hour with no weekend or shift differential. I have to work every other weekend. But with medical and dental coverage after 3 months (that they pay for) and a weeks paided vacation after 1yr. I was wondering if this is the normal rate for CNA's in my area. Also I'm a new CNA graduate with no experiance in the medical field what so ever.

    Do you mean all shifts make 11 an hour? I don't know any places that don't offer shift deferential. The most being for 3rd shift. Most places don't offer different for weekends though.

    Yes, I asked the HR and she told me that all shift make $11.00 and no weekend diff. It's a 50 bed LTC facility. I don't know any one in my area that works at a nursing home, so I have no idea what the normal rate is. A friend of mine works at the local hospital as a dietry aide. She told me that the starting rate there was $13.00 and they get shift and weekend diff.
    I just don't want to be short changed as a new CNA..... I'm so confused!?!
