cna starting pay - Page 2Register Today!
- Aug 17, '08 by rmarzIn SEK it varies greatly, from 6.50 to 10.00 an hour at LTC et hospitals. Agency pays 10-14 an hour.
Seems the cycle with CNAs that they pay crap as long as they can. Then they don't have hardly any CNAs, and the ones they do have aren't so hot, so they start using agency.... CNAs that have been there a long time get mad cuz these agency people are making twice what they are making and then quit. So the facility decides they need to pay more per hour to save themselves money and improve continuity of care, lol - they are usually 1-2 years too slow to realize this tho~
My point is, sorry for the derail, you can start out at 10 an hour as a CNA. You may just need to look past the first ad in the paper to find a place that has a high demand and is willing to compensate for it.

You lost me. You are getting an Associates just to get an Associates? If you wanted to be a CNA.. why didn't you just get an Associate Degree and become an RN.. you would have gotten much further doing that which makes more sense.
