    dear fellow student:

    i also forgot to mention that some of these companies want you to have at least one year of full time cna experience. i know favorite healthcare staffing does. i know medical staffing network does not. i think they only require you to have one year of working experience.

    i am not sure what your area would pay, but my area pays almost double. cna's in my area do not get paid well. with an agency it is better.

    there is another agency called dsg-diversified staffing group and arc healthcare. i am not sure if they work in your area.

    good luck!

    Yes its very possible to make 40k+ a year as a CNA, I worked part of the year for a small agency and travelled locally and worked full time the other part of the year for a large corporation in my home town in SW MN. This year i made just shy of $50,000 as a CNA!!!

    But you aren't in NC, right?

    I am also a CNA in PA. I work for an agency which is probably the best way to make the most money. I make from $15.00 to $17.00 an hour depending on which facility I am assigned to. Home care pays less at around $10.00 an hour which is sad because I love doing individual care. One of the cons working for an agency is that there is usually no medical insurance. My husband has me and our children on his policy, so I'm lucky in that way. The nursing home that I worked for before I went agency paid $12.00 an hour.

    Hey,

    I wanted to know how to search for these high-paying agencies... What's the difference between working for an agency and working for a hospital? Thank you!

    Wow the times are a little different now. I'm a CNA in home health care and I make between $11.22 and $15.00 depending on the case. I actually make the least of my graduating class in california BUT the compromise is that I get the hours I want. I only work on the weekend while going to school full time. I have a friend who works at a hospital for $18 per hour and my other friend at a nursing home makes $16 per hour. I hope everything worked out for you!

    Where do you work? I'm trying to find a CNA job while I'm in nursing school. I will have to probably quit my full time job because the hours won't be flexible. Thanks for your input!
