Am new here...................

    Hello all, I am new here, I have been around reading some posts for the last few days and decided to post.
    I am not a nurse, but am starting school this spring for Medical Asst. I am very exited, and ready to get started.
    I use to be a CNA, and worked with the nursing homes, although I loved it, I did not like the mental, emotional, and physical abuse being done to the residents, and expected to keep my mouth shut about it. So I left that profession and let the Supervisor know what I had seen and heard.
    I have always loved the medical profession, and want to become a CMA.
    Can someone tell me how it differs from being a nurse? I know that there are certain things that a nurse can do that a CMA can't, but other than that what is the differnece?
    Thanks. Belle

    Hi,
    I am a CMA and have been for 4.5 years. I have currently went back to school to gain my BSN. I loved working as a medical assistant, but the pay was low and you could only work in the office in my area. I worked with nurses in the office, and they just had more knowledge and better benefits. I feel that for my future Nursing was the way to go, and I love the medical field. I wish you luck in your schooling. Medical assisting is great! If you have any questions send me an email.
