Where are all the MAs?

  1. 0
    Hey everyone!

    Just wondering where all the Medical Assistants are at? How are you guys doing in your career? Do you have jobs? Are you certified? Just checkin in with the MAs...As for me I graduated in 2010 and I just became nationallly certified, but haven't found a job. Hopefully I move soon to San Francisco because I have noticed more MAs are in need there..

    So yeah! Just kind of like a MA Check IN. I also wanted to know how many MAs want to become a nurse like me and have you began your journey?

    Hello. I'm a CMA. I'm currently unemployed but in school for Nursing. Where I live there is a MA surplus and jobs are competitive. I will be volunteering at a hospital next week, and next summer I will be taking a CNA class because my school decided to make it a requirement.

    I completed a MA program at a trade school back in 2000 when I was 19 years of age. I was never able to land a job with my training.

    I completed an LVN program in 2005 and worked as an LVN for 4 years before earning my RN license. I have been an RN for 2 years.

    I love to hear about MAs pursing Nursing and MAs who have already became Nurses because it's the path I am going down! Thanks for the comments.

    Congrats on the interview. I hope you get the job. I've applied everywhere in my county and the surrounding areas and only got interviews. I wish you well. I would have lived an OB or Peds job.

    Yeah I'm from the bay. I have lived in Sacramento for almost 2 years now..I am so ready to go back. I have looked no craigslist and seen many jobs in San Fran and that is where I truly want to live. And yes I have heard they do have excellent pay especially in the financial district
