- 0Jul 26, '11 by JewelsyOk, so now I'm thinking of becoming a medical assistant instead of an LVN, or CNA, because it is so hard to find a job as a LVN right now. Does anyone know how hard it is to find a job as a medical assistant. I really want to do something in the medical field. I absolutely love helping others and I am very interested in medical issues. Thanks for your input.

Also,some LTC facilities will train you to become a CNA and will pay you for it and give you a job. You can look into that.
