Depends on where you live.

That's true, it also depends on the demand and it depends on the economy.

According to the U.S. Board of Labor Statistics, the mean annual salary for Nursing Assistants in the United States in 2008 was $24,380, which averages to about a $2031 per month. However, in certain states such as New Jersey or metropolitan areas like New York City, the Nursing Assistant salary can increase to as high as $36,000 per year, or $3000 per month. Still, the Nursing Assistant salary is low compared to that of a Licensed Practical Nurse, the next step up on the career ladder, who will make an average of $43,000 annually, or $3583 monthly. That's almost $20,000 more than the mean Nursing Assistant salary.
