How hard would it be to go from a medical assistant to a nurse?
I'm currently going to school to be a medical assistant. However, I'd really prefer to be a nurse, or something with higher pay. How would I got about doing that once I have my degree as an MA? Also, if anyone knows how much a medical assistant makes (hourly. Yearly) that would be great, and how hard is it going to be for me to find a job once I graduate? I live in central Austin, texas so I didn't think it would be too hard. However, recently I've really been worrying about this.
