How much does a CNA make in south jersey

  1. Hello I'm looking into going to school for multi skilled tech and you have to start as a cna and work at least 6 months before going farther in mst so I was just wondering if anyone on here is a cna in south jersey or anywhere in nj really?And also was it easier to find a job at a long term care of hospital and which one do you like better

    I have been a CNA for a little over a year. I started in a nursing home worked there for about a year making 9.91 an hour. Just got hired 2 months ago at a hospital making 14.27. Start off in a nursing home to get experience then move on. Btw I live in Jersey City, NJ nursing home average $9-$13, hospital $12-$16 an hour.

    I work in an assisted living in south Jersey and I make 10.50 per hour. I am a new CNA certified last fall. I also worked in a nursing home for the same rate with a 5% shift differential and an extra dollar on the weekends. That is typical pay in my area of south Jersey. Hope that helps!
