"JUST A LITTLE EXTRA."
Medical Assistant (Certified):
One extra year of school and you could be an LPN, more opportunities.should start in primary care to learn the basics , then jump into which ever specialty you enjoy most. Having the primary care experience will help immensely in which ever specialty you choose.
