    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

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

    After reading this thread it really upsets me that a majority of CNAs get paid crappy for the amount of work that they do.

    My one friend works in brewery and gets paid $18.50/hr to watch the bottle line and just pull off broken or fallen bottles. That's it. Now compare that to ALLLL the work CNAs do and look at that pay.

    What's wrong with this picture?

    Anyways to stay on topic I hope the pay around my area (Lehigh Valley PA) is at least decent. The lowest I can go is $10 bucks an hour and even that will be pretty lousy considering my last job paid $15/hr. I know they said that LTCF pay more than hospitals because they are really understaffed and need to get people in but, we'll see about that.

    I had to bump this because tonight I was having a conversation with my hubby and was telling him about the ratio of work/pay that CNAs have to deal with. This is what he said:

    "That's all you get? I thought you'd be making at least 20 dollars an hour!"

    Apparently he thought that all people in the medical field get paid a king's ransom.

    I haven't worked as a home health aide yet because I can't afford to live on that type of salary. But it's something I wouldn't mind doing. I don't think it would be weird going in their home. In my opinion it would be better than being in a hospital room.
    You perform the basic CNA tasks plus "light housekeeping" (putting dishes in dishwasher, dusting, preparing easy meals, etc.)
    If you want a job in a hurry and are getting tired of waiting on hospitals and nursing homes to call you back then home health aide is your best option.

    Yikes, are you guys serious?! In BC, Canada, CNAs start at $17/hour in the private places, and up to $22/hour in some public and private facilities.

    I find it completely horrifying that CNAs can make minimum wage anywhere- this is NOT easy work. And anything that requires formal education should definitely not be paying so poorly! How unfair

    I did that for 8 years before I became a nurse and I loved it.I did little housework, mostly provided personal care to elderly and handicapped.
