Hey, I live in Savannah and want to enter nursing. I'm probably going to start out as an LPN and then bridge to RN later after I have some experience and I'm comfortable with the job.
I thought of starting as a CNA because it would be the quickest route but my husband says the pay is very little for the kind of work you do. I'm not really hung up on pay but I would like to feel adequately compensated, regardless of which track I start with.
What do CNA's, LPN's, and RN's in your area of Georgia make? And if you have specific info for Savannah that would be even better. I've done the Salary.com for my area but I don't know how accurate it is. I'd really like to hear it firsthand. I know as a fresh from school employee the pay will be less but that's okay, I'm just trying to get a feel for what Georgia pays for these jobs.
Regardless of the pay though I'm still going to enter nursing in one form or another. I really feel it's where I should be. Thanks in advance for any info.
