i just got hired for cna in PA

  1. yeah i say ! i just got hired for a CNA position at a LTC facility. they offer the certified training and pay for it too.
    i start at 12-13 dollars per hour. Later down the road, i will work for agency, they start at 15 an hour here in our area. i think thats pretty good.
    i am a mom of 5 and have been trying to get my gen eds in to gear towards the BSN program, but will do cna work for now........need the financial help right now......
    anyways, just wanted to share the good news, hopefully i will love it !

    That's great!! I think working as an aid or tech while in nursing school really helps, but you don't have to do it to survive. I work as a tech and go to school and i learn a lot from work, it does help and the money isn't so bad either being that i don't have a degree and it's hard to find jobs over 10 bucks that are PRN without an education!! Congratulations and i hope you love your job!!!

    i would call your local nursing homes and see who offers the cna training or if they can give you some direction to get the training. In PA HACC offers it, and my new employer sponsored me.
    I am very interested in the PTC training if someone can help me find where to get it
