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.

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!

Apply for a position at a hospital has a phlebotomist. Hospitals pay more than clinics and you are guaranteed patient contact. I know because I have been there, done that. Good Luck!!!!
