  1. Medical Assistant degree
    I'm thinking for me an MA isn't worth the money. Keiser is trying to tell me how many jobs they have and they need to fill them with MAs. I think CNA is much more my speed. I KNOW they have those...

    The CNA course is $850. Normally no big for hubby and I, except that we just gutted out bathroom and need to re-build it. Mold caused our shower tile to fall in. Gotta love buying a house and not...

    I'd like to do CNA, but I need to come up with the money to do it since they don't offer assistance for payments. There are 29 CNA jobs open at my local hospital right now!

  5. Medical Assistant degree
    I wish I could go the nursing route right now, but for multiple reasons I can't. I can start a MA progam like next month though if I want, but it is pricey.

    There are jobs available, I have found them. But I'm not sure how many jobs are out there compared to how many will graduate the program each quarter. It seems like CNA jobs are in major abundance...

    I have been told it's a waste of time, there are no jobs, and schools are just trying to get you in their programs to make money. I'm still trying to decide between CNA/LPN/MA and medicl assistant I...

  8. CNA=Poop cleaner?!
    Thanks everyone! And yes, I think she is THAT nurse. She probably forces the CNAs in her unit to clean her patients, hence saying they are the poop cleaners! Oh well, at least I know not to apply...

  9. CNA=Poop cleaner?!
    Thank you! I can see there are some really special CNAs on here. Maybe she had a bad day...or maybe she is just a grouchy snotty nurse! I don't know her well, we just moved here a few months ago...

  11. CNA=Poop cleaner?!
    I told a neighbor I was thinking of maybe doing a CNA course in a few weeks, and they told me "why would you want to clean poop off people for a living? That's all they do, you know, right?" This...

    Yes you are right, I do desire to become a midwife one day. The only problem with stepping in that direction right now is the age of my children. My youngest is almost 6, but I have 5 children. I...

  15. LPN or Medical Assistant
    Should I go back to school and get my M.A. certicate or LPN? They are both the same length program, MA has a better schedule for the program. LPNs don't work in hospitals here, and from what I can...

  16. Advice on which route to go....

  18. Does nursing school seem impossible to get into?
    MY advice is find a private college. I was accepted and attended 2 semester at a private college nursing program. It's more expensive but you have a better chance of getting in IMO.
