You come home to find water pouring in through your kitchen ceiling. You grab a bucket, but all the decisions about what to do next come flooding in (pun intended!). Do you try to patch it on your own? No way! 

You call the experts because they know how to fix the problem. They’ll help you walk through each decision you need to make.

Choosing your first job as a CNA is similar. There are many options available, and each one comes with choices. And, these aren’t decisions you want to make alone. You need support. You need NextStep, the trusted placement and mentorship experts for new CNAs. 

Here are the top 3 reasons CNAs get their first job through us. 

Best Pay Guarantee

Have you ever heard the Helen Keller quote, “Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much”? This is exactly what we believe! We work with many employer partners and leverage our relationships to get you the highest-paying job in your area - guaranteed! 

However, you might be eligible for a shift differential if you work evenings, nights, or weekends. And full-time jobs come with a benefits package that can include things like health insurance, paid time off, and tuition reimbursement for continued education.

Schedule that Fits Your Life

We get it. Life is busy! And, even though you are just starting as a CNA, you can’t move some things in life around. So, you need a schedule that fits. We work with many different employers, making finding the perfect hours for you easy! 

Unmatched Support and Mentorship 

Let’s go back to your leaky ceiling for a minute. What do you do if you start having problems a few weeks after the repair? You guessed it - you call the experts back for more help. 

NextStep doesn’t only find you a job, but we support you through the first 90 days, which are the hardest! More than half of all CNAs will leave their current job this year. However, with NextStep, you have a trusted support partner to help with any on-the-job problems.

Even if there are no issues, we have resources created by industry experts that you won’t find anywhere else! Access blogs on many caregiver topics or skill refresher videos to help you brush up on care skills. So, no matter what you need to be successful during your first 90 days on the job - NextStep has it!
