If you have had a discussion about Caregiver and CNA recruiting lately, the topic of pay has likely come up. Across the country, home care recruiting has become a competition for top talent, and offering competitive pay is a necessity to survive. In a recent post Caregiver Recruitment: The Importance of Tracking Caregiver and CNA Pay we talked about how pay has risen across the country, but what are Caregivers looking to make in your state? We’ve compiled a list of state averages for both certified and uncertified Caregivers - an invaluable piece of data for any agency currently hiring Caregivers.
*Numbers listed in red fall below national average, while numbers listed in green sit above national average.
Where does the average in your state fall, and how does that relate to your current pay today? How does that compare to out-of-industry competitors like fast food and retail, many of whom have national pay rates that sit above minimum wage for individual states. In order to be successful when recruiting CNAs and Caregivers, you need a strong foundation of competitive pay for Caregivers to be interested in your agency.
