    In Las Vegas, CNA's make $11 per hour. Nursing homes, maybe $10 per hour. The agencies will pay you anywhere from $10-$17 per hour. You choose.

    I work at a nonprofit LTC in Houston and make $6.90/hr. At hospitals, pay is about $10/hr. I've been trying for months to get a hospital job, but with no luck whatsoever.

    Central CA - I started at $9.24 / hr, and got a raise to $9.71 / month after I got my licence.

    However, with dingy rooms-for-rent going for $600 - 700 / month... it's not enough.

    At my nursing home in Ohio I started out @ $10.25/hr three years ago and now make $11.30/hr. My friend only started out just above $9/hr three years ago. My cousin has been an aide for less than a year and started out @ $11.30/hr just out of school at my job. So I would have to say for Ohio its $9-$11.

    I just found out today that I will be starting my CNA training shortly. When I pass the state boards I will be making over $13 an hour!! Which is sad to say but the most I have ever made at a job.

    Therefore, much of the information might be outdated and dusty.

    Well Hi again. In the past 2 years my base pay has gone from $10 per hour to $11.15. At least it's going up! Of course gas and food have taken care of any increase. Oh yeah, where are the $35 CNA jobs?! They aren't in sunny Southwest Florida, that's for sure.
