    This sounds a lot better! Was it hard to find this job?
    I applied to about 30 facilities/hospitals when I got my CNA. With no previous experience and a bachelors degree in biology, I got 4 call backs. It wasn't easy, but I am super lucky and grateful to have landed a job with a New York state hospital ... with benefits and it's union. Good luck to you lady!

    I had no experience and applied to every hospital and nursing home for months. Finally I got a job at a hospital. I make $16/hr.

    Im nervous about it too, but I have 2 friends that work in 2 different hospitals, one as a nurse and one as a CNA, I hope that will help wedge me in. Also in the meanwhile I applied for a p/t office assistant job at a birthing center about 25m from my house. Eventually I might get the opportunity to train there as a nursing assistant

    Super late on this, but where did you end up doing your CNA? And how much did it cost? I'm in Brooklyn as well and am hoping to do a CNA prog during my summer break. Thanks!

    I just went on my 1st interview as I will be newly licensed.I got called for a 2nd for the 3-11 shift. A LTC facility with a huge Corp that owns several and the starting wage was 12.00 and hour!! I have a 2nd interview but that seems like peanuts to me. What to do! LOL I am NW New Jersey and heard the avg was 13.50. I have to buy my own uniforms with no reimbursement as well. Is that normal?? I am doing clinical in another of the same Co's facilities and its HORRID! This one is beautiful and I would be excited but after 23 years of hairdressing, paying for school to change careers for 12.00 an hour! HELP.

    $10-14/hr is typical for a new, inexperienced CNA in the northern NJ area, is no reimbursement for uniforms. Very few facilities reimburse for uniforms. Some areas of NJ average for a new CNA is $9.50-11/hr.

    This is not a licensed position but a certified position...
