CNA jobs $15-18/hr ??


What CNA jobs are available where you make $15-18/hr besides at a correctional facility? I've been a CNA at a rehab private hospital for five years and want to explore new things. My interest are office work, typing, patient care, etc. I never worked in a "big" hospital or registry and located in California. I have heard about EMT's and monitor tech, etc

Specializes in Critical Care, Med-Surg, Psych, Geri, LTC, Tele,.

If you can get hired by an acute care hospital--kaiser, Sutter, etcetera they pay $16-21+/hr

After you have 1 yr experience you can work for a temp agency that places you in a hospital. They also pay over $20/hr to CNAs.

Good luck!

In my state some of the hospitals (union) will pay $15/hour starting wage for CNAs, they typically want min. 1 year of acute care experience.
