Why does Medical Assisting get looked upon more than CNA in nursing application process?

Hello,

my community colleges (ADN) nursing program gives CMA, EMT, PSYCH AIDES to name a few 5 points towards the application point system and only 2 for CNA & HHA. Why is that? I know it has to do something about certification ... but what else? This is one reason I plan to get my CMA certificate. Ty in advance!😬

It would be interesting to hear their rationale.

Red Shirt 6, CNA

Has 2 years experience.

In the state I am in to get a HHA certification there are no clinical requirements and the certification test has few skills to master. I do not know why CNA would only be awarded 2 points.
