    ROTFLMAO! Is that what CNA's make out there? Gee in WI you are lucky to find one that has a starting wage of $10/hour.
    $10 as a starting wage? In my dreams. My starting wage as an NA was $6. When I got certified it went to $7. Now it's $8. It ain't gonna go much higher. Good thing I don't have a family to support. I don't know how people do it.

    In a Level II Trauma hospital, in Spokane, WA. Starting pay is $10.75 with one year experience (plus $0.10 per year experience). Evening shift differential is $1.00, NOC differential is $1.50 and weekend differential is $1.21. So, since I work Eves and have 3 years experience, I make $11.95 during the week and $13.16 on weekends. RNs start out here at $19.00 per hour, so I'm not doing THAT bad.

    Wow... here in southern Alabama people would kill to make over $10 an hour as a CNA... my facility starts untrained techs at $6.25, then raises it to $6.75 after they finish the certification class. All I can say is thank goodness I'm an RN! Of course here a 2 bedroom apartment runs about $300-$500 a month...
