After 20 years of teaching preschool, I'm starting CNAI classes next month as the first step to nursing school (planning...hoping....to be accepted for Summer 2012). I'll finish in December and want to get started in the field ASAP. What is the typical starting pay in the Charlotte area? I know it's a lot less than what I'm making now (I get paid well for what I do!) but I know the experience will be well worth it. THANKS!
