If you are someone who is interested in becoming a CNA or Certified Nursing Assistant, one of the main things you need to know is the salary range you can expect to make once your classes are complete and you find a job. A CNA has a very important job in the healthcare community and also a very rewarding one as well.

A CNA has a long range of duties that include but not limited to lifting patients, moving patients, moving and changing medical supplies and medical equipment. CNA’s must also get their CNA certification. Since CNA’s work with patients on a day to day basis, they must pass the certification exam that is generally after 4-6 months of training. The training classes can be taken at a community college or technical school.

Just as in any other field, experience can play a large role in the amount you are paid. CNA’s that are just starting out generally make between $20,000 – $30,000 annually. Many times the state you live in can determine where you start out at. As you get more experience your salary range will go up. After you get your CNA Certification exam can make between $30,000 – $50,000.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the field is growing and will continue to grow. The larger the number of people growing older keeps increasing due to the baby boomers and a CNA will always be needed. Also, you can always go after your nursing degree in the future as well and earn even more money.
