According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS), nursing assistants in Kentucky made an average hourly wage of $13.12 as of May, 2019, which is only slightly lower than the United States average of $14.77 per hour for the same occupation. While in some states nursing assistants who have their state certification or pass a state competency exam may be referred to as CNAs (certified nursing assistants) or STNAs (state tested nursing assistants), in Kentucky nursing assistants who take a state approved training and education program along with a competency exam to become registered with the Kentucky Nurse Aid Registry are referred to as SRNAs (state registered nurse aids). Kentucky SRNA status is good for two years, at which point it must be renewed by providing proof of eight hours of paid employment as a nursing aid to the Kentucky Board of Nursing.
