    "And it seems to me that clinics are leaning more toward hiring CMA's and phasing nurses out altogether. Which I think is sad, but in the clinic, the CMA's training is specially for clinic use, i.e. blood draws, X-ray, etc."

    Now, why do you think that is so sad? I was a CMA before I was an Lpn and I worked quite hard to get it. Do you not think that CMA's deserve to have a job? I am afraid I just don't understant all the MA bashing I've read on these boards from time to time.

    MA's work very hard and personally I think the more you know about a medical office and or administrative aspect of any medical facility is a bonus. I was given 2.00 an hour more as an Lpn, simply because I knew how to do administrative things as well.

    After all, knowledge is power!
