How Much Does a CNA Make Per Year in Indiana?


Certified nursing assistants, or CNAs, get a chance to get to know the patients they work with. Because they attend to patients' needs and wants, and generally work with the same people over a long period of time in nursing care facilities, they have a chance to establish a strong relationship with them. CNAs in Indiana don't need formal training unless they volunteer for certification, which requires 75 hours of completed classwork to pass.
