Re: Medical Assistant Transition

I would like to know why they offer no kind of transition course for medical assistant's to LVN?

I know there will be some to disagree however I have been a medical assistant for 10 yrs and in a clinical setting there is a very fine line that defines the role of medical assistant and LVN.

The fine line you speak of is your scope of practice for your specific discipline as set forth by the state medical board. When overstepped, it can have serious consequences.
