i am looking into becoming a cna while i go to rrt school and was wondering the range others are getting paid in california (la, oc and sf areas preferably) in hospital environments. i was told in the $15-$17 range, but i am thinking that might be a bit far fetched. also, with the economy and some employers on hiring freezes, are cnas still in demand? any thoughts or advice are greatly appriciated... thanks!!
