It depends on what shift you work there in searcy between $8.50-9.00 if you just get your CNA, but you also need to make sure this is what you want to do or you wont like it, dont take it just for the pay go into the profession because you love helping ppl, you will have to have a soft hand , calm voice and a god listener, they residents are there because they need help, at time you want to pull your hair out, and you can not let them see that.

Everywhere is going to have a different rate, homecare is around 8.50 per hour to start, you can typically get more ( or pay increases quicker) at nursing homes becasue they have big turn overs. If you truly are wanting to do CNA work ( it is a job of passion, you need to WANT to do it not just do it because it pays the bills) remember that in a nursing home you will have a whole hall to care for, in home care will be one, two or three people in there personal homes a day.

at a childcare center you will probablly start out at minimum wage and a CNA will not really benefit you there becasue in CNA classes you are dealing with elderly and disabled not children.

becoming a CNA will NOT help you see if you like nursing because they dont do nursing stuff. And they only make minimum wage maybe a like more depending on where you go.

16,000-18,000 a year. If you work nights you will make more money. Good luck.

1. I think when I was an aide it was 8-10 an hour. I was a student nurse tech at the VA hospital and made 13-14 base pay, 16-17 if I worked weekends or second shift (you have to be in nursing school to be a tech at most places just FYI)

2. I know the hospital is fast paced but gives you a look at how everything in health care works. You see nurses, docs, etc. and it DOES give you an idea of what nursing is like. It did me anyway. No you don't pass meds or poke people. But in all actuality aide work is a nurses work also. Nurses do everything aides do but NOT vice versa. As a RN I changed briefs, help with baths, help feed patients, etc. it is the NURSES responsibility patients are cared for. If they are not it is a nurses license on the line even if it is 'aide work'

3. There are a couple of different types of home aide work. Some aides see 6-8 patients a day (usually) and just help give them a bath, dress, etc. some aides spend long shifts in a single patient home and take care of everything (bath, changing, feeding, etc).

I can't comment on nursing homes cause that just isn't my thing. But I'm so thankful for those who do it happily!
