    Here in Long Island, NY you can make up to $18.75 an hour. That's what my friend is making at a nursing home.
    Maybe your cost of living is way different than W.P.B FL! My teacher says to me, at the most we "might" make 10/hr
    Are you including shiff diff and waving the benefits? Thats real high.

    I have seen job listings for CNAs at $18 an hour, but they were for private duty home care positions.

    I work at Children's Hospital, I don't know if 15 is standard for everyone. I started when I was a senior in nursing school, so I never received a CNA license. Also I stated on my resume that I am bilingual and CPR/AED certified- I don't know if that has anything to do with my pay... Good luck with the job search!

    I just got hired at a hospital without experience and without a CNA license (Currently on my 1.5 years of nursing student) for $13.50 and $14.50 for weekends in the subs of Chicago.
    How did you get hired? Did you fill out app on line? or go to the hospital in person? I almost have my cna and desperately want to work in a hospital. I am wondering did you have any prior experience or a great cover letter? I have no experience this is a career change for me so my application seems like it might get tossed to the side, would love to know how you got noticied. Thank you in advance

    Good info.

    I'm going to start looking for a job after I pass my test exam. I already applied to a few places and they told me they don't hire new grads. I guess CNA's are also having problems getting a job as a new grad.

    I actually didnt even have a cover letter! I was so nieve. I applied for the position online... I honestly didnt think I was going to get a call back for an interview, but I did. I did my peds rotation at Childrens Hospital, and I mentioned that in my resume, so I think that helped. And btw- they don't hire new grad nurses as CNA's at Childrens, so its tough for those new grad RN's out there that dont have either a CNA job or an RN job. Good luck!!!

    Hi, I am a newly certified CNA.
    I just got hired a week after I graduated
    I heard a lot of rumors about pay during my training... from extremely low to extremely high. I can only work weekends on 3rd right now because of kids and my husband's schedule, and I was offered $13.50 to start with benefits (sick days, holidays, vacation after 6 months, and health/dental offered). I am pretty happy considering I'm only part time. Good Luck!
    What state do you work in?

    I filled it out online. I heard that my hospital likes my school so they will accept students, but I dont know if that is true since we are a fairly new school too but it is local to one another. I did have a cover letter but in the end, I have no idea how it happen.
