    MA here! 20 years experience and I have been working on and off on my prereqs for nursing school for that long! Almost done and really nervous about the competive nature of nursing school entrance. Being an MA is great but after awhile you feel you need something more to challenge you.

    Thanks for joining! Yeah I know what your talking about..I have been a MA for 20 years but I have wanted to be a nurse long before a MA ...it's not challenging enough for me...So I am also taking my prerequisites for nursing. Good Luck and nice to hear from you!

    Sounds good! I wish you the best, if there's anything you want to ask me about being a MA or any questions you have I will try to answer it to the best of my ability. Good Luck in the MA program!

    Hi CMAtoRN: I am interested in about being a MA. I have a few questions:
    a) What were your classes like?
    b) What is the average pay for a MA?
    c) What is a typical day like for you?
    I hope this isn't too much. I am currently a teacher but I have always wanted to work in the medical and eventually be a nurse. However, I cannot completely stop working and go to nursing school full time at this time since I have a 1 year old. I would like to get my foot wet in the medical field to see how its for me. Anyway, thanks for the info!

    Finishing my administrative certificate this December and I'm super pumped! Are there any other pure administrative MA's out there with a little advice for a newbie?
