They make a little better than minimum wage to start, but if you can get on at the VA Hospital as a CNA you can make an ok salary for a CNA. I can't remember exactly what it is, I think $27,000 a year to start, but don't hold me to it. I would call the VA Medical Center and find out. I am sure that they start you out significantly higher than anywhere with regular raises. In my opinion that would be the best place for a CNA to go.

The last I heard, CNA's at Hidden Valley were starting at 8.50 an hour with no experience. Of course if you choose to work evening or midnight shift there is a minimal shift differential pay. As a former CNA I can tell you the work is hard, with very little reward and no pay. I made 3.35 an hour when minimum wage was 3.35 an hour.

They definitely should make more than they do. If it's done right it's the hardest job in healthcare.

yes the work is hard, but you start at the bottom and work your way up, its a job, it has its own reward,s, you will know that you made a differnce in someones life.

Wow...where do you work? First, cna's do not move up unless they go back to school...you start at the bottom and thats where you stay. Secondly, we are so over-worked and under-staffed there is no time to make a difference in someone's life. There is barely time to meet their physical needs and thats only by cutting corners.
