I am a nineteen year old Medical assistant. I have been a medical assistant for awhile now, but my ultimate goal is to get my nursing degree and work in either L&D or NICU/Neo-Natal. I have a full time job (8-5) at a family practice as a medical assistant. I want to start taking my pre-req's to be eligible to go to nursing school, but I want/need to keep my full time job. I want to definitely pursue my nursing career dreams. Have any of you worked full time and went to school? Do you have any advice for a new comer in the field who has some experience in the medical field as a MA? I would really appreciate all the advice I can get, about school, the two specialties I want to work in, and balancing school, work and a social life... Most importantly getting enough rest! I plan on starting school Fall/Winter '13 (: Thank you so much !!!
