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.
The average yearly salary for a CNA in Indiana in 2009 was $23,740, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The 10th percentile annual salary that year for this job was $17,890, while the 90th percentile was $30,700.
In 2009, Indianapolis proved to be the city with the highest average earnings for Indiana CNAs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. CNAs there earned $25,610 a year. Lafayette was also a top paying city that year, with the yearly average salary for CNAs being $24,400, followed by Anderson at $24,330.
The northeastern, non-metropolitan region of Indiana proved to be the lowest paid for CNAs in 2009, according to the BLS. The average annual salary there was $21,680. CNAs in Terre Haute average $21,750 and in Columbus the yearly income was $22,780.
