Mostly have seen MAs in private Dr offices. Not so much in primary care.
Most of the time you will find MAs in doctor’s offices
There is currently a huge demand for MAs. I am an RN working in primary care and we had one MA for 6 months for 4 providers at a time. We hired 2 that did not work out and just hired another that is working out well so far. MAs are an integral part of primary care offices and are usually under appreciated and over worked. So yes! Very needed!
Sorry about that L! Lol. Distractions abound!!!
As for your question, LPN's are (once again) not important. Since my Covid testing sites essentially shut down, I have not been able to find work as a nurse. All the ads call for RMA's or RN's. So yes! Demand for RMA seems high. Good luck to you!
I work in Outpatient Clinics and the Medical Assistants are the people getting hired, even more so than nurses. Not sure what the pay is, but going to Nursing School is GREAT, which will greatly open up many more doors for you, plus with your skills as a MA, you’ll possibly be a step ahead of your classmates. From what I’ve heard, the MA pay generally starts out at around $13 per hour. That may be the case where you are, too. Much Success in your career 😀
