CNA's/PCT's how much do you make?

  1. I have a couple interviews for PCT positions, but I have no idea what to expect as a salary. I am a student nurse in NE FL. Please tell me where you live, your experience, and how much you make. I know I will probably have to take a pay cut, but to be doing what I am going to school for will be worth it, I think. Thanks for you help!

    Central Florida here. I made $8.00 even at an ALF. I make $8.67 at the hospital. I just had my 1 year evaluation so it will go up just a little. I have the option for full benefits, but it costs more for me because I am only part-time.

    :chuckle yesssss......a 2bd 2 bath apartment will cost you $1600 a month, and I don't think they even sell houses less than $400k

    This would be why I still live w/my parents!!!

    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.
