  1. My youngest sister is interested in becoming a nurse and has looked into becoming a medical assistant as a way to prepare for that. Three semesters is a pretty fast amount of time to get certified as a medical assistant! Would it be wise for her to work as a medical assistant if she wants to be a nurse or should she just go to nursing school?

  3. A medical assistant is an allied health professional that supports the work of physicians and other health professionals, usually in a clinic setting. Medical assistants can become certified through an accredited program usually offered through a junior or community college.[1][2] They perform routine tasks and procedures such as measuring patients' vital signs, administering medications and injections, recording information in medical recordkeeping systems, preparing and handling medical instruments and supplies, and collecting and preparing specimens of bodily fluids and tissues for laboratory testing.
