How much do Certified Nursing Assistants make in Indiana?

I was thinking of taking classes to become a Certified Nursing Assistant and then take classes to bump up in the Nurse profession. I find I am really excellent with children. They love me. :) I like adults too and listening to their stories, but I could see myself more with kids. But, it doesn't matter I guess? It's either this I am considering or social work. If anyone out there is a nurse or a CNR, could you give me some tips and help me out? Do you like your job? I really loooove to help people, and it's not all about the money for me. But, it would be nice to be able to make money and move out to my own place someday. That's all I want=my own place and happiness. And, I think making other people comfortable and smiling make me the most happy.

CNA is an entry level job and will not pay much more than 16-20K in most cases. You really need to pursue and RN to make a decent living as a nurse. As for social work you will need at least a BSW (so you are looking at significantly more education than nursing which you can do without a BA (though a BSN is... More
