    I believe they're paid with either pizza or bagels, so the exchange rate is kind of skewed...


    However, lately they've been paid in snow- something I know nothing of.

    Hello -

    Where in NY are you asking about ? Is it the city such as Manhattan or the outlying areas or upstate ? I have not known of hospitals to employ a CNA for many years either in NYC or upstate. In Manhattan regarding hospital employment there have over the last several years been three major hospital closings so many of the nursing assistant jobs are very difficult to come by. Most hospitals are more comfortable with an all RN professional sta

    Some hospitals do employ patient care techs however this a job that one is specifically trained for and usually the hospital offers training to those who have expirience and history of acute patient care ie Medical corps men or student nurses who have deferred school.

    Most CNAs find employment in LTC, Assisted living homes, and some in working with mentally challenged in group homes or in some residental psych centers.

    Considering your request for only day hours when child care is needed it is very rare. I am afraid your going to be very much out of luck in securing a position. Usually that is based on senority in the facility and of course days are always the shift that is most popular with staff.

    You many consider a hospital clinics, outpatient centers, private home care, or physicians medical office. These would seem to be able to meet your hours of employment needs however the pay is often not very adequete from my understanding.

    Another thing to consider is that where you were certified as this may not be accepted by the NYemployer and one may find that they have to repeat the course again for a NY certification. A person I had met did find employment of the type your looking for via Craigslist verses the institutions or News Papers. I strongly suggest you do not pay any agency or indivigual that offers to find you employment. These are all scams esp in NYC.

    Regarding rate of pay it varies quite abit depending on factors such as - need /qualifications/ instituion/ other benefits / education/location/ hours/ instituion specialty and size ect. Overall it can go throughout NYS anywhere from $16000 to $34000. Here is a general rate I found on the internet.


    $31,188 = Average CNA Salary in Brooklyn, NY $24,645 = Average CNA Salary in Buffalo, NY
    $21,983 = Average CNA Salary in Elmira, NY $27,492 = Average CNA Salary in Glens Falls, NY
    $33,922 = Average CNA Salary in Hauppauge, NY $23,593 = Average CNASalary in Ithaca, NY
    $23,804 = Average Salary in Jamestown, NY $31,188 = Average Salary in Long Island, NY
    $31,106 to $34,000 = Average Salary in Manhattan, NY $29,106 = Average Salary in Nassau, NY

    I use to live in NYC for many years and orginally am from upstate mid central region - if I can assist you in any other questions feel free to respond. Hope this helps. Best of luck and hope you enjoy your relocation.

    Hospitals in NYC do not employ nursing assistants? All RN staffing? Since when?

    Took a friend to Lenox Hill ER a few weeks ago and can assure you there were plenty of "PCTs" running about, a few doing priviate one on one with a patient in the cubby next to were we were assigned.

    Lenox Hill, NYP, and or every other major healthcare system employs some sort of "assistant" nursing staff:

    Patient Care Associates
    Certified Nursing Assistants
    Patient Care Technicians

    ... and while the list of "titles" goes on the functions are pretty much the same. It seems awhile ago, and rumor has it the service workers unions pushed for an upgrade from what was considered a "lowly" title of "nursing assistant" to the various forms seen today, but again make no mistake the job description is pretty much the same.

    As for job losses, what normally happens is the union, say 1199 upon hearing of a facility closure will move it's member CNAs, and or give them first pick of openings at other places represented by the same union. There is also as with everything else places are cutting back staffing to save funds, and that includes assistants.

    You can find out more about average wages et al for nursing assistants here for a start: http://www.york.cuny.edu/conted/asse...sing-assistant

    In general wages have never been great for nursing assistants, and while union influence has probably helped, if one get's >35K per year it should be considered lucky.

    As changes in the nursing profession move RNs in other directions, it is assistant nursing staff that does much of the "bed side" care in hospitals.

    @Turd...so funny!

    CNAs that I know were making $10-19/hr depending on how much experience they had.
