There are 2 places to choose from.
1. The first place is where you already have worked as a CNA through school, get along with the nurses and manager on the floor okay and know they have a job waiting for you when you graduate. But with this place, you know the weaknesses and how busy it can get. The nurse/patient ratios and pay are pretty average.
2. The second place you don't have experience at or know anyone but they start you at better pay (.50 cents/hr more) and give you a bonus with only one year - the other place required a 2 year contract. They tend to have a slightly higher number of patients per nurse (usually 2 more/shift).
Both places benefits other than described are virtually identical.
Thanks for any replies.
