An average Entry-Level Nursing Assistant can expect to take home roughly $11.81 per hour. Unfortunately, some people in this line of work are without benefits — more than two-fifths lack coverage. On the flip side, more than half have medical insurance and just over two-fifths receive dental plans. Work is enjoyable for Entry-Level Nursing Assistants, who typically claim high levels of job satisfaction. Among survey respondents, women are more common than men; 86 percent of Entry-Level Nursing Assistants are female. The numbers in this rundown were provided by PayScale's salary survey participants.
