Confused on what I want to do

Hhcna Hhcna (New) New

I apologize as this will be long winded, I'll try to keep it as short and sweet as possible. I got my cna about 3 years ago but it's only been this past year I've been working under it. I work as a home health aide and most of the time love it. It has its own benefits, but I've always aspired to be more. I was briefly in the lpn program and to withdraw because of too many classes. I've always wanted to be a nurse but I feel like it's taking forever. since I've only been able to take two or three classes at a time at a local community college. I've recently been looking at other aspects to the medical field as there are really endless options, though I've been considering MA. I don't know what to do. I don't want to be an aide for forever but I feel like the program is so far off for me even though I'm going on my 2nd year of college. What should I do?

is cna to ma a lateral move? if so, go for nursing


Has 15+ years experience.

The MA track will not allow you further career advancement. If you want to be a MA for the rest of your life, go for it.

My 2 cents? Better to amass education that will build upon itself without starting over each time. You never know how much more complicated your life will become.
