Question by Miscellanious: Which is a better career to get into, medical assisting or becoming a CNA (certified nurses aide)?
which is better salary- wise, and which one would i have a better chance of finding a job at? i’m looking specifically for information based on how it is with the jobs in the New York metropolitan area (Long Island, 5 boroughs, and where else, etc), but even if ur not from ny and u dont know anything about the job situation in this area i would still like your input on this topic (from wherever your from).

I’d say regular medical, like a physicians assistant would be a good choice. The medical field in general has a big shortage, so you should be able to find work, and from what I understand the salary of a physician’s assistant isn’t too shabby. I believe the median salary is around $ 82,000, I believe it also requires a master’s degree.

A regular medical assistant usually does office work, and that median salary is around $ 28,000.

    The medical world holds a rich vein of different jobs from the obvious nurse and doctor jobs to adminstrative jobs. My sister wanted to work in this field, but she wasn’t sure exactly what she wanted to do. She found the resource in the resource box below, it has lots of guidance, and it guided her to decide what she wanted to do. They have guidance with other jobs too.

    From the midwest I don’t see a tremendous difference. But picking a job that will make you happy has incalcuable value.

    Do what you love and do it with all your heart

    God Bless,

    the pay is about the same, I’d go with a CNA..do that for a year or so to see if you like it, if you do then maybe go back to school to be an LPN, being a CNA will give you great hands on experience which will make nursing school easier if you choose to do it.
