Male CNA in Montclair, California

Hello all,

I've just finished my CNA program and successfully passed the California Certify test. I've also took the CNA/Acute course, because I really wanted to work for the Hospital. To my surprise, it seems so hard to get a job around where I live (Ontario, California). It's been 2 months now and I've applied for multi locations at Hospitals and Long term nursing homes within the San Bernardino and West Covina areas, but not even one call back for an interview. Anyone here know any CNA reputable Agencies temp/permanent jobs that I can contact? I appreciate your time in reading my rant, but I've so frustrated of not getting a job.

lol not in california.... Too many immigrants willing to work for little to nothing just to obtain a job. There is no unity here, it's all about one for all and all for one. CNA wages will NEVER increase the way it's going on in California with the declining economy things is not likely to improve for a LONG time.

I'm trying to find one that will start in December.

But if it starts later that's okay too. I just want to get it done in 1 month or less. Or close to one month.

I am a CNA and i went to school for 3 months to do it. I currently work for a hospital here in florence sc and let me tell you, it is a total burn out. I dont want to scare anyone away from cna work but your best bet is to get a better paying job. i started out makeing 7.09 an hr and the work is overwhelming and i work 12hrs a day. i work every other weekend and i have a family to come home to. so you tell me if you want to work for florence sc. i am in school for my rn now but that seems to be what i want to be but i hate being a cna. its good experience but it is overwhelming and all the slack work gets dumped on you.

Hi. Im reading everyone's comments and im scared. i just graduated high school and I want to start a training at Sacramento Job corps for either a CNA or Medical Assistant but from reading everyone's comments, this might not be the right job for me. I can work 12 hour shifts and i have the patience for it but i also want time for my husband and child. Do they have you working all out of the ordinary hours? Job Corps provides a job placement program but is it really hard to find a job in either of these careers. Please help me out CNA's/ Medical Assistants before i make my decision

SC unemployment. It it actually for CNA and Residental Care Specialist. My concern is the pay. Just not sure I chose the right career

does that get paid by the the WIA program? if so how long did it take to get approved. I have just went to my local unemployment for the 1st time. So far they haven't given me any info on getting funds for CNA school

Try finding ROP programs through your community colleges...its wayyy cheaper to get classes and trained. I found out too late about these free programs and ended up paying 10,000! Its not worth the money if youre just going for CNA. Find free programs...they are out there! How exactly can I work as a CNA in a clinic? I hear it or read it but I only see job offers for med assistants....

P.S Dont waste your money on those vacational schools. KAPLAN is a ripoff.

I just started clinicals this week and very disappointed that I chose this class. Oh my God, I also knew this was going to be hard work but I literally had to go home and get a bath a go to bed, thank God we had the next day off. I was sore head to toe and was totally over whelmed. I am going to see this through and get certified but then I am going back to school and take something else. They don't pay enough for all that you are required to do in a day, I would not recommend this to anyone. Good luck to you and I admire you for sticking with it. Kim

what? $9.00 an hour as a CNA? you do more work than a LVN and they get paid a lot more. That is crazy! you might as well be a caregiver and most likely get paid the same amount or more.

well in August I will be starting my CNA program at riverside community college I am so excitied about it. To everyone out there who is wondering where they could find a affordable cna program , riverside community college has one . And the job prospects for cna's seem to be abundant you just have to go out there and look. Some places that I've already applied for only have positions avaiable for certified nurse assistants . And I cannot wait until my cna program is finished and after i taken my certified nurse test.

Try going into the actual hospital and find the resource department and ask them if you can talk to the human resource dep. manager, then ask them if they are hiring. If they aren't, ask if you can get an application to become a volunteer and then ask if you can set up an interview to become a volunteer. Try to get a spot volunteering in the emergency room. I've heard it's the best place to get your foot in the door. After you are in the program they will hire you. They usually hire people who they are already aquanaut with. Think about it, why would you hire someone off the internet when there's a perfectly good CNA already volunteering for you, who you know is a hard worker :) Good Luck!

Gina in KC in Kansas City, Missouri

Hey I've been working in the health care field for over 10yrs in medical billing and coding and recently decided to go back to school for nursing. The CNA classes here run you about $1200 (that's just for the class) and extra $200 for books and another $250 for lab fees, exam cost & TB/Drug test, which if your quailfied your able to get a Pell Grant from the Govt. Don't bother going to those Tech Schools i.e ITT tech, Colorado Tech....the ones you see on T.V. they are a rip off!!!! And getting your MA Medical Assistant is a waste of time to me, your better off getting your LPN which is around the same amount of time, you'll have better employment options and you can bridge over and get your RN degree plus you'll make more money. Check your local Community Colleges and they either have classes or can reccommend a state Tech school in your area. Make sure there accredited in your state and go so far as checking with the BBB. As for pay I went from $18hr as a Medical Biller to $11hr as a CNA and yes it's hard work (I work in a nursing home) it's nasty, smelly and sad. Most would say I'm crazy however this is just a stepping stone to my real career choice as a nurse, I'm just taking the long road. I'm currently in LPN classes and once done I will bridge over an get my RN. So I'll suck it up and stick it out. Try nursing agencys in your area, home health agencys, try USAJOBS.GOV i.e. VA medical center, try your local hospitals and mental health facilities as they hire CNA too! Good luck!!

vanessa in Denver, Colorado said: I knew this would be really rough work, but it still surprises me. I have been a CNA for 3 months and I took the first job offered, which paid above minimum wage and guaranteed full time. I make $10.20 an hour as an evening shift CNA working in a medicaid/medicare long term care facility. This facility was very easy to get on with, but it suffers from major understaffing and bad management, and I would not recommend it to anyone who felt they had another option. *rant rant rant*
I had to pay for my class. It was roughly $1200 through a local college. The average pay for a CNA here seems to be between minimum wage and $12 an hour. There are also places hiring here, but like every other industry you try, they do their best to only hire part-time CNA's, which I find personally frustrating because I am not a student and just want to work.
I can tell you to not rely on an online application to get you a job. Call to check up on it, or just dress up nice and show up in person, preferably in the morning before lunch hour.

*please note I live in the Grand Junction area of CO*

Hi vanessa, I am currently in a program in westminster, Co. and I will go on my clinical site in a few weeks....I'm so nervous about the state test.

As for jobs you just have to keep looking and I know the pay is not all great but once you get the experience I have told that you can apply at other places that will pay alot more :)

It's been my experience when someone says the CNA is making 9 bucks an hour and I ask where they work they say in Assisted Living. that's why. You don't even have to be certified to work assisted living. not that there's something wrong with working there, but I live in Cali and I've never heard of a skilled nursing paying that little to CNAs! Not in the Roseville/Citrus heights area anyways.

everyone I know who became a medical assist. say they can't find a job. I think the trade schools over sell it, so there's just more people then Jobs. CNA jobs get a bad wrap for some reason. I loved it. It's hard and you do change depends, but if that doesn't bother you it can be great. People say they don't pay over 9. but I think those people are working Asst Living. Which is OK I've done that too, but the pay is low and it' not as fast paced as CNA work is, which I like. They pay 12- sometimes 15 around here. Just make sure if you do become a CNA that you apply at skilled nursing places not Assit living. Registries can be a good start if you don't find work right away.

the main reasons I became a CNA and not a med assist was I wanted to care for the same people everyday (not a doctor's office) and I enjoy the elderly (most CNAs work in nursing homes.They don't have Med. asst in nursing homes) but if you don't want to ever work weekends or holidays Doc.s offices are a better way to go. -JUST MY TWO CENTS hope it helped

Don't listen to Florida person, you could make 12 bucks starting out they may try to low ball you at first, but don't take yourself low, there is a very high demand for CNA right now and they started out good, my lil brother who is a CNA now they started him out 12 bucks and got a raise right away. There is a lot hope for California jobs and people should just bug out with the California economy it's bad but not shady, and anyway it's the best place to live instead of the nasty humid area of Florida.

Marie in Long Beach, California said: I am like all of you,lol..I have been stressing all month over school, and which program to take..whether its the medical asst program or the CNA program. I went to a technical school 2 weeks ago to get info and they immdiately started trying to enroll me, and although I liked the school, their tution was 15,000!!! Even after grants and financial aid I wouldve still owed 10,000! So eventhough its shorter I decided to do Long Beach City College, for MUCH MUCH cheaper BUT NOW IM CONFLICTED! I dont know what to do. Ive heard soo many horror stories on people not finding ANY JOBS for medical assistant or CNA! And also, I heard CNA's have a high burn-out rate, and that most people quit, because its exhausting and not too good of a pay! I really want to get into the medical field, but I had my hopes on working in a clinical setting or even working for a private practice. Im kind of traumatized to work in a hospital setting because of a tragedy I experienced and truely want to avoid any ER work/ externships. Do any of you know if ALL CNAS HAVE to work in a hospitals to gain their experience? Also..which of the 2 is paid a little better? My ideal job would be to work and assist a doctor of a private practice, or work at a Cancer center, or OBGYN. ANY ADVICE BEFORE I start classes in January?

In california it is better to be a medical assistant. They can pretty much get a job anywhere but it sounds like it would be better for you to work as a CNA if you want to avoid the hospital setting.I did my clinicals in a skilled nursing facillity. Most CNAs work in convalescent homes or as home health aides. Medical assistants usually get paid better.
