I am thinking of applying for a CNA job in Clarksville so that I can gain experience working at a hospital while in nursing school, but I do not know how much they would make. Please tell me hourly rates for both nursing homes and hospitals thanx!!

I start at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in July in the Pediatric Nurse Residency Program. My starting pay is 17.25. if I do critical care, i get $1 more an hour. Night shift diff is 3.40/hr and weekend diff is 6.00/hr on top of that. This is about average for the Nashville area.
Thanks for the info .. the base seems low even for Nashville but those differentials are pretty sweet. I guess I seem greedy but dang going to school is such a committment LOL. I make $15 hr now sitting on my butt being a bank teller..guess that has me spoiled LOL. One of these days after I finish school and get a few years experience I really want to try travel nursing. That just sounds perfect to me.
Which school are you in? TSU?
Congrats on the new job!
PS...what nights are actually considered weekend? The weekend rate would be $27ish hr! That is pretty good. Will you be working 12 hr shifts?
