HIGHER WAGES FOR CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANTS
Certified Nursing Assistants: The unsung hero. The job details a very heavy workload. They do a special job of caring for some many different types of people, but treat them all as family! It could be you, your loved one, who one day needs the care of a nursing assistant. They clean bodily waste, feed those that can't feed themselves. Dress those that can't dress themselves. Some nursing assistant draw blood, do blood sugars, take ekg's, assist with wound care andtake daily vitals. Nursing assistants arejust asat risk ora higher risk of contracting infectious andnon infectious diseasesas doctors and nurses. In all reality nursing assistants are needed to keep hospitals, nursing homes, day cares, schools, doctor's offices and many other public service places running. Certified nursing assistants deserve a higher pay wage. Nurses are paid twenty or more dollars an hour. Nursing assistants are just as important as a nurse. Ten or fifteendollars an hour for a nursing assistant is not a good wage. My goal is raise the pay wage for a certified nursing assistant to at least seventeen dollars an hour and not have to work your entire career to get there!If you have years invested in this trade you deserve a decent pay wage. If you feel certified nursing assistants are underpaid, overworked, unheard, unseen and unappreciated.
