Insider Tips

Certified nursing assistants typically earn an average hourly wage of $12.00. Experience has little to do with salary, with the most experienced CNAs only earning marginally more than people new to the position. Location can have a more marked impact on salary, with certified nursing assistants in Seattle, Denver, and Philadelphia earning significantly more than the national average. In contrast, certified nursing assistants in Tampa and San Antonio make slightly less than the national average.
