As a CNA what salary can be expected? I only have 2 yrs experience (LTAC, Hospital Rehab, ER, Med/Surg & Corrections). I've also worked 7 of my hospital months concurrently as a Unit Secretary. I was looking into an LPN program (since it all has to come out of pocket, no aid I'm maxed out) there too. My target is the Virginia Beach School of PN. Currently I'm in Las Vegas, NV working home health getting $13.25/hr with no benefits. In the hospital I got $16.25/hr.
It's tough getting information being so far away. I'd prefer an RN program but nonresident tuition would kill me. I'm also 37. My girlfriend (35) thinks it'll be better than here in Vegas. I would love and greatly appreciate any advice from those in Virginia (Chesapeake, Portsmouth & Virginia Beach areas).
