    I start my first job as a CNA on Monday. I will make $10.81 plus $1.62 shift differential for nights, and an additional $1.30 shift differential for weekends, and we work every other weekend. So on weekend nights I will make $13.73, and I have no experience.

    Waco, TX; $8.25 an hour w/ just under a year exp. at the same hospital. I think most of the aides, with no experience at my hospital make 8.75. I took a pay cut because the hospital paid for my CNA class, CNA certification exam, 5.50/hr while attending class, as well as all required materials for the class.

    I was told that after a year we'd be paid 8.75, which is what they start new aides at.

    Made $9/hr at the nursing home (but we had great bennies)
    Then at the hospice I made $12 plus travel time and miles for home visits
    The hospital pays based on years of experience - By the time I got there I had two under my belt - started at 13.70.

    I've found the hospital/LTC disparity to be a pretty common thing.

    Oh, this is in SE PA.

    When I started in 1996, I made 6.50 an hour. When I left CNA in 2002 I was making a little over 10. Now that it's 2008 when I get into CNA, I wonder how much I'll make

    I live in Indiana
