Moved away for work and now we are thinking about moving back because we would rather be near family. Some of my friends are saying things are picking back up in Michigan. I am a Certified Nurses Assistant now "acquired after I moved out of state" so I am thinking I would be able to find something.

Are things picking back up?

I've been lurking on this forum and I've noticed a LOT of these threads lately. I'm also a displaced Michigander who's thinking about moving back. I was just back home a few weeks ago, and I know it seemed a lot better than it was last year or a few years ago. I'm not sure about the CNA job market, though . . . I'll have to leave that for a more knowledgable person.

I know. Most people who left Michigan did so because of the recession, and now that the economy is improving, a lot of people want to go home.

CNA is a glutted market here, so I'd be sure to have a job lined up before making the move

Depends on where in the state you are moving to. I am an RN who lives in the Ann Arbor area and if a CNA can't find a job there or in one of the western outlying suburbs of the Detroit Metro then they aren't trying very hard. If you are moving to a more rural area, then you may have a harder time finding something, but you never know until you try. Most LTC facilities are hiring CNAs right now.

Good luck and I hope that you can move back. So many people leave Michigan thinking that anyplace else is better, only to find that Michigan is far better than they thought.

I will be going to the central Michigan area and will be looking from Alma to Midland for work. There are a lot of LTC facilities between those two towns so I will keep my fingers crossed.

Nursing has always been pretty good to work in around here. Come on home!

It's not getting better, it's pretty much the same. We get a few jobs and the new media runs off to report how things are "picking-up" but what they don't mention is that those jobs are part-time and for minimum wage. Real jobs are few and far between and would likely go to locals anyway. My husband and I are looking to move out of Michigan right now. We have jobs, but there is virtually no chance of advancement. At my husband's job they have gotten rid of many people, they do not replace them though, they just have people take on more tasks to bridge the gap. At my job we are constantly short staffed by design to have the fewest amount of workers to have to pay.
If you are really set on moving back. Be sure to have a job already lined up.
