Before I say anything further, I do NOT intend for this to be an MA-bashing thread or anything of the like.What I'd like to know is, in clear terms, what can an LPN do in an MD's office that an MA cannot do, and vice versa?The reason that I ask is that I'm planning on sending out resume's en masse to local MD offices in the hopes of getting a M-F 8-5 position. I'm just sick and tired of working nights. However, there's no way that I'm willing to work for the same pay rate than an MA would get, so I need to come up with reasons why the MD would be able to justify hiring an LPN at the LPN rate rather than an MA.Unfortunately, I don't really know any MA's and have no idea about the actual MA scope of practice. Do they even have a "scope of practice"? That's how little I know about MA's.
