I had the opportunity to conduct research in order to respond to your question on how much a CNA makes in Rhode Island. According to the website, www.salary.com, the average salary for a CNA in Rhode Island is $33,242 as of July 30, 2019, but the range typically falls between $30,295 and $36,705. Salary ranges can vary widely depending on the city and many other important factors, including education, certifications, additional skills, the number of years you have spent in your profession. In addition, it depends were you work at. Usually, a CNA would make more money working in a hospital rather than a nursing home, clinic or for a homecare agency. You may want to consider these factors and figure out what is best for you. As you establish years of experience, you are able to earn a higher salary. Think about obtaining other certifications such as drawing blood in which you can make more money in the field. I hope my feedback is helpful to you.
Nija recommends the following next steps:
- Have the opportunity to have an informational interview with other CNA's to obtain information that you need to know about becoming a CNA.
- You can reach out to the Human Resources Department at any medical facility to ask questions about the salary of a CNA
- You can conduct a google search to research on CNA salaries.
