I am a pre-nursing student. I am going to get my CNA license over the summer. I figured since I could use a job while in school that I would get a job as a CNA since it's related to my major. I don't have any major bills to pay, but my car payments which is $300. Anyone know what the average salary is for a CNA in Florida by the way?

man-nurse2b- How many days do you work a week?
oh I'm not a CNA, my wife was one at a LTC, she quit tho, the place that hired her started with $9, this is in the country areas of Florida close to Palatka. She tried evening shift it was hectic with 15 to 18 patients per CNA, then switched to nights but their patient load was like 15 to sometimes 21 patients on the night shift per CNA. There is no way 1 CNA can watch all those people.
For myself I was thinking about challangeing the exam after I finish my first RN semester...i.e when I get accepted. I have a few option one of which is I am also thinking to keep my current nonmedical job and go to night classes at FSCJ..I got bills and mortage to pay, being a CNA wont really cut it.
