I agree with Isaacs answer. Nursing school is not easy. Are your grades good? So the second part of this answer can be . If you feel nursing school maybe a struggle and your a person that works well with there hands , cares about patients, has empathy and your better at learning by doing the by reading you would make a great CMA.
CMA work hard in the position they are assigned to. I myself have been a RMA (Registered medical Assistants) for over 20 years. I started my career working in tha lab. Then Changed my career path to Emergency medicine E.M.T.-B , Paramedic. Worked several years on the ambulance. As I became a mom I had to stop work in dangerous , high adrenaline situations. It was effecting my emotions. So I went in the doctors office and became a RMA. My education and experience allowed me to take the state test with out graduating from a medical Assisting program. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

Typical training is abour 6 months- year+,and they dont pay that much. Your scope of practice is very limited. There is no CMA bridge program to become a RN. For the amount of time, money you spend and the tranning you are better off becoming an LVN or RN. Higher pay, better benifits , prestigious title and more job opportunities
