A Nurse is a better job. It’s a lot more school though. A medical assistant pretty much just takes orders from the nurse or doctor and get stuck with the crappy jobs a lot (like changing adult diapers, etc.)

    Difference between a medical assisstant and a nurse? A LOT! Research this in your local community college’s handbook. And, you don’t become a nurse through a vocational school. Ooooh, that hurts.
