  1. more than a mom

    beginner pay rate

    Well, I got a phone call this morning. I go back to the ltc facility on friday for a 1st dose for TB, a criminal background check and info. for what I will need for the 1st day. Once I successfully complete the course, I will have a full-time job on the 3-11 shift. I'm excited but scared at the same time.

    oh, I forgot. This program last 4 weeks. The first place that I applied, but turned down because they just had part-time/casual call positions. That program was 3 weeks. Also, the local comminity college has a cna training program through other nursing homes. That costs $585 for I believe 3 weeks. That price covers the text books but nothing else.

    Well, I had my interview yesterday. I think it went pretty good. The interviews wont' be done until May 22. The starting rate is $11.28 with $1.00/hr more for the 3-11 shift. They offer medical insurance for the whole family at no cost to the employee. $100/year for scrubs. If someone from the next shift doesn't show up, you don't have to stay (unless you want to, it's not mandatory). I asked that question. For scubs, they can be any color and any print. They offer a retirement plan,with employee contribution of a min. of 7% of pay. I did forget to ask how many residents a CNA is responsible for.

    I'm like in the center in the south central region. It takes about 45 minutes for me to get to either: Harrisburg, Reading or Lancaster. I'm in the Lebanon area.

    I applied for a nurse assistant training program at a ltc facility. They do offer paid training with a job offer after successful completion of the class. Anyway, I have an interview on May 12. On the applicaton, they ask about salary. I have no clue on what to put down. I've been a sahm since 2005, but have been doing childcare in my home for about a year. I'm in PA. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    CNA starting pay

    Earlier today I filled out an application for nurse aide training at a local long term care facility. On the application, they had a question pertaining to salary. I've been a stay-home mom for the past 4 yrs and have no history in the medical field. I did get a call and have an interview set up in May. I'm in Lebanon. Can anyone help and give me a ball park range for a nurse aide in training would be? Does the rate go up once the class is successfuly completed? The ltc offers employment with successful completion. thanks in advance.

    Well, I went this morning and filled out an application for the nurse aide training. I got a phone call this afternoon and have an interview for May 12 at 10. I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I hate the waiting period. But that's the way it goes. The longer I have to wait the more nervous I get.

    Well, today the ltc home called. I'm really interested in full-time and all they have is part-time and on-call positions. They rarely have full-time. But they did direct me to another ltc faciltiy in my area that has full-time. I gave them a call. The person I spoke to, wasn't very friendly. All that I know is that they have a class scheduled in June, the same date as the other one. I'm hoping to go Wed and fill out an application. Hopefully, I will be able to find out more info. than.

    The training is for three weeks, 8-4:30. Right now there are no full-time postitions, just part-time. They offer training about 4 times/year.

    I'm 36 and mom of 2, (4 & 2yrs old). I have always had an interest in nursing but never persued it. Before I had my children I had sem-decent jobs and was once an assistant superviser at a flag manufacturing plant. Well, circumstances have changed. I'm a stay-at-home mom but my marriage is not so good. I've decided I wanted a better life for me and my kids and applied at a LTC facility that offers paid training with an job offer with successful completion. The next class doesn't start until June. I'm nervous and excited at the same time. Hopefully, I will get a call soon. I was a little nervous because of my age, but now I see, I'm not the only one my age going through this. This site has been great. I've been reading all Ican in the posts about cna's for the past few days and just joined.
