Medical assistants have seen a whopping 30% job growth rate in their sector in the past decade. We’ll compare training and job opportunities for medical assistants (MAs) and certified nursing assistants (CNAs), so you know exactly what to expect from each career.

You may note similarities between medical assistant courses and CNA training, but once you get past the basics,  the two jobs are incredibly different.

Here’s everything you need to know about both careers, and the top five reasons we think the medical assistant route is the better choice.

Top 5 Reasons to Become a Medical Assistant

Becoming a medical assistant is a great career path to choose if you’re just starting your education. Not to mention you can complete a medical assistant program in 1 year.

Here are the top reasons to become a medical assistant:

#1 You’ll Have the Power of Knowledge

Medical assistant schooling covers a variety of skill sets, which opens more doors.

#2 Your Skills are in High Demand

There are more job opportunities available for MAs than for CNAs in the current job market.

#3 Choose the Field You’re Most Excited About

If you want to specialize in a particular area, medical assistants have more flexibility in choosing specialties.

#4 No Two Days Are the Same

If you’re interested in both administration and patient care, MAs have the opportunity to get involved in both areas.

#5 Rewards for your Hard Work

As a medical assistant, you’ll be paid more, but it’s important to recognize that both medical assistants and CNAs are entry-level jobs. In order to work your way up the ladder, you’ll need to complete further training. Also, medical assistant pay may vary depending on the state.
