    Hey! I am an aide, and I work in the Binghamton region. I started at $9.32 two years ago when I started in the hospital, and now make $11.47. I make $10.58 as a Home-Health aide. Finding a job is easy, if you have the right timing. Apply to many places, check them out, see if it fits. I got into home-health by assisting my neighbor, and fell in love with the field. Good luck.

    Here in NYC, I think nurse's aides make $12 and up per hour. They work in hospitals or in LTC facilities, or as home health aides. Lots of hospitals have tuition assistance or reimbursement as part of their benefits, so yes, it would help you in your journey to becoming an RN. I don't know if LTCs offer that kind of assistance, though. It's a very good experience if you want to be a nurse.

    I work at Winthrop in Mineola, LI as a PCA (which is another name for a nurses aid) and I started at 16.53/hour and depending on the shift you can make over $17/hour with the differential. That is the starting rate at Winthrop and St. Francis starts at over $17/hour. I've only been there 3 months.

    Actually the LIRR train ( Mineola) is right next door and you can walk from the train to the hospital.

    Buses do not run as regularly on LI as they do in the city.

    How long have you been a PCA? Do they only hire people with experience and/or new graduates?
