Im sorry but there is not a career track from MA to RN. Medical assistants are not nurses. They do some of the things that nurses can do but they are not nurses. They are concidered allied health professionals. If your goal is to become an RN then I would def go for your LPN. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!
ETA: I did an MA program it took 18 months and I received an associates degree in Medical Assistant. But none of the credits transfer to an RN program. NOT ONE! So I am now doing an LPN program which is about 12 months and everything I do at my LPN school I take with me to an RN school because they have bridge programs! If you start with your LPN you will learn a lot that does carry over! GOOD LUCK!
