- May 23, '06 by KnarfKSIt really depends where you live. In KC I made $8.50 at a rehab hospital, but really didn't have to do anything. And now I make $13.00 an hour working my butt off, but I learn a lot as well.

- Jun 17, '06 by RoxanRN2003Quote from hpham827In some facilities, once you have been completed 1st semester of nursing school and get checked off on certain skills (foley, NG, dobhoff, etc - may be more, may be less) though nursing school, you can perform them. This gives you the opportunity to practice this skills on live patients (as the nurse deems appropriate). At least where I work, a CNA cannot do these skills.I know I'm butting into a conversation, but do you what the benefits are as a nurse tech??
- Jun 22, '06 by jess_mI am in KC and I worked as an aide for 3 1/2 years before I graduated from nursing school.
I worked for an agency and made about $14/hr. Then I wanted to get to practice my skills so I went to a facility that let me do that and my wage dropped to $11/hr as a first year and $12/hr as a second year. I never got any benefits at either place since I only worked part time.
- Mar 13, '08 by eNIGMA619Dude, I heard that the starting pay is freaking $9.00 an hour for a cna! I was thinking of taking a two month course for a cna certificate but I'm gonna have to check into that.
- May 21, '08 by babygirl66733Cna's in the southeast part of the state make around $7.00-$9.00 and in the southwestern part make about $8.00-$9.00. I hope that helps
- May 25, '08 by ExAirBagRN2 years ago I started with St. Luke's Hospital (on the Plaza in KCMO) with out ANY healthcare background (they train you as a Patient Care Technician) and I started off, the first day of training, at $12.00 and hour with full benefits for my husband and I.
St. Luke's also offers tuition reimbursement after 90 days on the job for part time and full time employees- I just graduated from an LPN program a week ago, and they reimbursed for all of it. I am transferring to another St. Luke's facility and will to start as an LPN on a med surg floor after I pass boards. I plan to bridge to RN in the next year, and St. Luke's again to the rescue!
I feel very fortunate that St. Luke's really takes care of their employees!
