My mom is a medical assistant. They don't make a lot of money here at all. She is getting okay pay right now but she has been doing it for 5-6 years. My mom went through a private school. Only a few community colleges where I live offer it. I think it would be a good starting point if you plan on going further in the medical field or if your SO makes good money and you don't have to rely on yourself. I guess it depends on where you live too. I would go to the community college if I were you and speak to a counselor they can help you figure out how much it would cost to go to school for it and how much you can expect starting out where you live. Also, schooling was like 9 months for my mom. Im going for RN.
