    I have had a CNA license for years. I have applied everywhere (home health, LTC, hospitals, psych homes, etc....) I've only ever been called for an interview for home health. Did it for 3 months and hated it. I've volunteered at two hospitals for a combined experience of two years. I don't get a single call from anyone. CNA was a waste of money.
    I am sorry you haven't had much luck. I have been a CNA for 4 years and when I first got my CNA licence, I was hired. It might have to do with your location. I worked for a traveling staffing agency that paid me $12 an hour as a new CNA.

    Hey toxic.waste,

    You said you got a job at a traveling staffing agency? I am a new CNA grad and I just got a job for a traveling staffing agency as well aka registry.. They pay $13 BUT they don't train! I am scared because even though I graduated, I would feel a lot more comfortable being trained at least a day or two.. Were you trained? Or put on the floor right away? Thanks!
