My daughter works there and right now there is a hiring freeze due to the merge of Baptist Hospital and St.Mary's, they have closed Baptist and now have to place all those employees, but they started her out at $10.00 an hour. She's been there just over 1 year.

Hope this helps you.

Tabby,

FYI, the position you are inquiring about is CNA, not Cna. This is a job that requires completion of a training program, not something you can learn "on the job". I am sharing this with you because if you complete an employment appliation, you will want to correctly list the job you are applying for. You know what they say about job applications: You never get a second chance to make a first impression and many times, the application offers prospective employers the first impression of the person applying. Good luck!

Tabby, did you know that you can go through the Red Cross and be CNA certified in 5 weeks?

Also Tennessee Career Center will pay or help pay for it, if you qualify.

Good luck!!

My daughter is going back to school in August for something else she thought she wanted to be a nurse but now she know's better..LOL!

KAC,thanks for the info,but the CNA course I am taking is 300.00 and the one at the Red Cross was like 850.00.So I don't know if TCC did help pay for it I would come out any better.Good luck to your daughter,I hope she finds something she likes better!I think I will like being a nurse,but like her after I get a taste of it ,I may find out it's not for me either.LOL!!Does she do the same type stuff in a hospital that you would do in a nursing home?

Tabby, she works on a surgery floor. Yes they do stuff like nursing homes but, hospital's are better. She don't like nursing homes to many die, and she feels sorry for the ones that have no family that care. I hear Childrens Hospital is a good place. Also 3rd shift at ST.Marys is better.
Yes, I hope she finds something she likes better.
And something that pays better. LOL!!
Are you moving here?

I did the CNA course at the Red Cross last year. I passed and did great in my first job as a CNA. I too wanted to do CNA first and I'm so glad I did that than to go straight into LPN school. I figured out that I didn't like it. You can find a CNA job just about anywhere so you shouldn't have a problem. Good luck in your endeavors Tabby!

Not riding a high horse, just trying to help this person who wants to apply for a job she can't even spell.

what's the difference in CNA and Cna, don't they stand for the same thing and are spelled the same? the only difference i see are the capital letters in one and not the other, not the spelling as you indicated!

You don't get it - and if you ever apply for a job and don't get hired, perhaps it is because your application is poorly completed.

Don't be so critical, leaving 2 letters uncapitalized and people start to criticize. I also work in the medical field and yes I noticed, but I am not that judgmental to actually correct them. I think that is very rude to correct someone and there are so many people on here that do. I did have to stand up for this poor girl, because I get tired of all the perfect grammatical people on here. So get off the high horse and come back to normalization!

No high horse ride taken. Tabby was writing because she was inquiring about a career in this field. I responded to offer her assistance, thinking she was about to apply. I've worked in Human Resources in health care, so I know how competitive the job market is. Something as simple as a mistake on an application can make the difference between selecting one applicant over another. I'm not the world's greatest speller, and we're all human and capable of making mistakes (me included), but the job application is often the first impression a recruiter has of the applicant.

I was only trying to help. Gosh, by the time people get through criticizing my responses, Tabby will have completed her CNA training. I meant her no harm and wish her every success. Please take my original response in the spirit it was intended, and get on with it.

Dear *RN*,

It's nurses like you that give the profession a bad name. Open the Sunday paper the want ads are littered with nursing careers. Ever wonder why they can't keep help? It's not only the low pay but nurses like you that think they are above the rest just because they hold the RN title. I hate to rattle your syringe RN but the CNA's do the hardest job and get paid the least.

Your post came off as judgmental and you were rightfully attacked in my opinion. I just hope that Tabby doesn't have someone like you on her team otherwise she will just be another statistic in the nursing career.

Thought I sensed a touch of Human Resources nazism. Only someone in that field would worry about C.N.A. vs Cna

As much as we depend on computers, in a couple of generations, nobody will be able to spell more than a 4 letter word by themselves.
