I am a certified Medical assistant in FT WORTH TX. How do I find a job that provides more Patient care?
I currently have a job,and I love my patients most of whom are elderly, but theres too much office drama & paperwork,and not enough patient care for me. I also enjoy doing bloodwork.By far my patients are what make the job worthwhile! I already do bloodwork, so no certification is needed there.It is just a aspect of my job that I like. Im thinking about home health, or phlebotomy, but no pt care their...what are the pay rates for something like that?home health aide, unfortunatly I still have bills to pay.

Go back to school and get an RN license. Then you can do all the patient care you can handle. Also you will never be wanting for a job with all the nursing shortages. All you need is an associate of science in nursing and to pass the NCLEX. You can do it in 2 years and have a much better paying job. Good luck!
