CNA hourly pay rate?

  1. 0 Hello.
    I'm trying to apply for this nursing home near my house.
    but i'm not sure what to put for desired rate of pay.
    so..
    what is the average pay rate for starting cnas?
    i looked up and they are giving me different rate.
    thanks

    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.......

    Sorry -- can't help you with NC. I can't even guess at wage rates in that state. Also, don't forget, as many young people do, your benes. Good insurance can mean a lot to you.

    i am from eastern n.c. near the rocky mount area & for this area the average pay is
    $ 8.00 per hr. for rest homes & home health, and $8.45 per hr. for the hospital. in home health if you work with a caps, or veteran pt. you will make more per hour. ~~ for a caps pt. it is $8.40 & for a veteran the rate is $9.00 .

    i am thinking maybe in the bigger areas such as charlotte, raleigh, durham area perhaps it pays a bit more but i am not sure.

    In ohio, with zero experience, I started at $9/hr, but after the shift differential and Weekend differential I actually make almost $12/hr. I'm weekends only, so thats nice. =o)
