CNA Vs MA

So I'm thinking of going into the medical field. If you are a CNA please tell me a little about your job and pros and cons or anything you think is important to know. And MA's the same please. And if you aren't either and just have some advice on the subject please let me know. Any information or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Sarah

  • Do you mean an LPN? RNs are higher up than LPNs.

    CNAs get paid more and need less schooling. I"m an MA and it cost $10,000 to get it and I can't find a job paying more than $10/hour.
