Hey Everyone, I'm looking to be a PCA/ CNA either in Dallas / Ft Worth Area or Houston or Austin Areas. Here in Oklahoma I can make $15 an hr. I don't really want to settle in Oklahoma and want to move back to Texas. Can some RN's, CNA's PCA's etc someone with current experience tell me what the starting wages are in each area. And How do I get into it? Call directly to the hospitals, agencies, websites or what? I've been sending my resume out through websites but nothing yet.
I want to continue on for my RN too but need to move and really need some help.
If I call the hospitals directly, do I just speak with the hiring dept or Human Resources?
I hear its so easy to get a job as a CNA or PCA because the turnover rate is so high but how come i'm not getting any call backs?
I was chatting on here one time with someone in Houston who said b/c the medical center is larger in the hospitals their PCA's make more then $15 an hour but can't find that thread. Anyone in Houston can tell me this, Dallas, Austin?
Please don't email or reply if its not relevent to what i'm asking.
Thank you all
