Hello I want to work with the GI and perform colonoscopy, and other procedures with the digestive system. Should I go to school for medical assistant, lpn, or rn. Some of my friends say go straight to for RN. But others say do medical assistant because I do have a business mgmt degree where maybe I can tie in. I live in New York City and a lot of colleges are giving me run arounds to get into the clinical parts of nursing school. Also some nurses told me medical assistant is a waste of time. What should I do??
