Utah CNA Salaries
Utah is acclaimed as one of the fastest growing states in the United States, according to the United States Census Bureau’s population estimates. With Utah’s abundance of natural beauty -- the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin and the Colorado Plateau -- it’s no wonder people are flocking here. Along with a growing population, the widespread shortage of skilled nursing personnel means that Utah can offer many opportunities for employment for a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) may work in any setting such as a nursing home, assisted living or long-term care facility, hospital, hospice, clinics, psychiatric and substance abuse hospitals, or medical office practice if they are supervised by a licensed nurse (LPN, RN) and are performing nursing or nursing-related services. The Intermountain Medical Center, Saint Mark's Hospital, University of Utah Health Care and Utah Valley Regional Medical Center are some of the medical facilities that regularly have openings for CNAs in Utah.
According to the job search engine indeed.com, based on an index of salary information extracted from over 50 million job postings over the last 12 months, the average median annual certified nurse assistant salaries for job postings in Utah is $33,000. For other cities throughout the state, annual median salaries are as follows: Salt Lake City, $31,000; West Valley, $30,000; Provo, $24,000; and West Jordon, $33,000.
