soo, after a ton
of thinking i made a change and decided to hold off on pursuing an adn. instead i am going to get a certificate in medical assisting. (http://lonestar.edu/medical-assist-dept-nharris.htm
i plan on going back for nursing after my boyfriend and i have kids and get them into pre-k. staying home with them when they're young is extremely important to me. i know some people will say that putting off nursing is a bad idea but i feel like it is the best decision for me.
aaaaanyways, i have a few questions that i would appreciate if someone could help answer
- do you think that being a ma will help prepare me for nursing? my dream is to work with babies:heartbeat i would love to start out as an l&d rn and work my way up to being a neonatal nurse practitioner. can medical assistants work on l&d floors?
- do medical assistants need their own stethoscope? i did some research on here and read a ton of good reviews on littman stethoscopes? which model would you recommend?
- are there any websites for customized scrubs? i'm 5'9 and on the curvier side and have read soooo many reviews on scrubs not fitting large chests/not accentuating waists/etc...?
