    I always think of CMA's as comparable to an LPN but I am not completely sure about that.
    My CNA job works around my nursing school schedule.

    Just what makes me nervous is cna jobs will work around if u r trying to become a rn but what if it is for a medical assistant still think they work around that?

    Callie I think it would depends on the facility, most that I hear about seem to work around any sort of further education.
    My facility was working around my shcooling when I was planning on going for an xray tech
