Hmmm. I was a CNA for years, back in the 90's, early 2000's. It was about nine dollars an hour (although I made twelve an hour for a long time with a temp agency), which is ok for this area. It's pretty average. It was enough to support my small family when I was doing it, when we were a family of three. I'm in Missouri.
It's hard work, depending on where you work. Nursing homes pay the worst, and you work the hardest. Hospitals are the better places to work, but its harder to get on there. You get to know, and love, your patients. You care for them daily, and they become like family. It's hard, but rewarding, work. You do have to deal with family members who may or may not be demanding, and mean, to you. They ask things of you that you can't give them-like getting four hundred year old mom out of bed when you are feeding fifteen people. Or putting her right back to bed when you are trying to lay everyone else on another hall down.
It's busy, physical work-but time passes so fast. It's work that will keep you fit, so you never have to worry about working out. lol

Your welcome! I want to add that I made more money with a company that sends you to different facilities. I made $18 an hour to sit with a patient at a hospital for a 12 hour shift! Then they sent me to a long term care facility that payed the CNAs $9 an house and the company that sent me paid me $16 an hour! I worked for the hospital 64hours every 2 weeks so I only worked for the travel company part time!

Thank you !
