  • It really depends on your area, your experience, and the company. In my area, you can make anywhere from $7.50 (for home health care) to $14-$15 working at a hospital. On average though, it would probably be about $10 working at a nursing home.

  • It depends...are you a certified nursing assistant or a state tested nursing assistant? I am an STNA. I am not currently doing it but I am maintaining my license so I can go back to it when I'm ready to go back to work in a couple years.
    Before I was state tested, I worked as a job at a nursing home I was paid only minimum wage.Then I had worked at an assited living and I made $9.50 per hour.
    As a state tested nursing assistant, I have worked through agency makinng $13.00 an hour,at a hospital making $13.50 and at an alzheimer facility making $10.50
    It varies from state to state. It also varies with your experience.

  • 13-15 in AZ. Even as a new CNA in 2000 I never made minimum wage!

  • My family is trying to push me into doing it here in Indiana. They make about 11$per hr. I have been through the program and almost completed 75 hours of UNPAID~ OJT. It was AWFUL! All I did was run from incontinent person to person cleaning them and changing their pants!!!
    My dh and I are having money problems,my baby is almost in Kindergarten and I am going for something other than a CNA.
