Hello Dear,
Do you know what is the salary of certified nursing assistant salary ( ???!!!
Nursing assistants are valuable parts of every health care facility staff. They do all the basic assistant jobs required, such as bathing, feeding and dressing their patients, making their beds etc. They are often also the first people the patient or the patients family turn to, as they are near the patient most of the time.
A CNA annual salary may be anything between $19,500 to $29,000, depending on the location, the work experience, etc. The median salary is around $26,300, which means just a little over $2,100 per month.
Comparing these figures to that of the expected salary of a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), gives you a sense of the frustration CNAs may experience. The median annual salary of a Licensed Practical Nurse is around $43,000. Of course, an LPN had a longer training: around 2 years, as compared to a few weeks training for a certified nursing assistant, and holds more responsibility. But the LPNs job does seem easier when looking from a nurse assistant's perspective.
