CMA, MT, or Phlebotomist???

  1. Hi! I am having this huge dilemma! My ultimate goal is RN-BSN —but I don't want to be in my current occupation anymore (retail and waitressing) I want a job(s) in the healthcare field before becoming a RN.

    CNA will give you the best experience before and during RN training.

    MA degrees usually take 2 years to complete, which is a long time. Phlebotomy degrees also take a long time. Becoming a CNA is your best bet, because you can complete your training in a short time, and you also get more hands on work. The only thing I have to say about being a CNA, is that it's very tiring working in a nursing home. Go get a hospital job as quickly as you can
