Can anyone here tell me what the hourly rate / salary is for CNA's around KC, MO? Which hospital pays what rate, will help greatly too. Do any of you think it is worth doing a CNA then bridge program to RN, rather than straight to ASN? I aimed to start my ASN in the fall, but i think i want to get into nursing a.s.a.p. One reason is coz i'm fed up with working in a hotel (front desk) where I have to deal with really horrible guests yelling at the most silly things
. The thing is i'm 7 months pregnant right now, another reason why i had to wait for the fall semester to really get back in school, but gosh I get so stressed out with mean irrational guests, i feel so sorry for my baby who's in utero and has to suffer from my rising stress levels
. I know nursing can be stressful too but I enjoy taking care of unwell people , and I'm not so sure what happens to some people when they are on vacation, but they seem to lose their sense and respect for humankind, something i dont expect to see from patients...
thank you in advance for all your input! you are all soooo nice from what i've seen on this site
