Are you including shiff diff and waving the benefits? Thats real high.
- 0Mar 27, '10 by GuatericanNurseI 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 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 advanceI 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.
- 0Mar 28, '10 by GuatericanNurseI 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!!!

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!
- 0May 25, '10 by LocoStrangeQuote from kimmy436I 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.How did you get hired? Did you fill out app on line? or go to the hospital in person?
