Current CNA Pay Range

  1. Can I have some insight on what Nursing Assistants currently make in 2016? If you could tell me what kind of facility you work in that would be helpful as well. Thanks!

    As a nursing student with my CNA license, I made about $13.50 (not including differentials) at a hospital in Colorado. Nursing homes in this area advertise about $9-10.50/hr.

    Thanks! I'm trying to gauge whether it is worth it for me to work during nursing school or not.

    It will largely depend on where you live and the cost of living in your area. I live in a rural area of Kansas and base wage at the hospital where I work is $9.25 per hour. The nursing home 13 miles away pays $10 per hour base wage.

    $11.67 in CO, I've been working for a year in home care and had one raise. I was offered another job at $10.50. I work very part time (one day a week) and do it more for the experience.
