Wisconsin Healthcare Careers

Certified nursing assistants (CNAs)

Certified nursing assistants provide basic care and help patients with activities of daily living. 

The median annual pay is $36,750 per year in Wisconsin, and it is expected that the need for this position will increase by 4% (as fast as average) in the next 10 years.

CNAs in Wisconsin must complete a training program and pass the competency exam.

Although most nursing assistants work full time, some work part time. Because nursing and residential care facilities and hospitals provide care at all hours, nursing assistants may need to work nights, weekends and holidays.

You may be a good fit for this opportunity if you excel in communication skills, compassion, patience and physical stamina.
