Ohio MA pay rates etc.

Hi, I just wanted to let everyone know that in Ohio we are allowed to do ALOT as an MA, and also someone that just graduated from the MA program started out at 16.90 an hour to start. In Ohio MA's can do almost as much as an LPN, we can give injections, draw blood (in Ohio LPN schools (most of them) do not even teach venipuncture! I just wanted to add that even if you go to become a MA ....if you land a job at the hospital they will pay for your nursing school....sometimes this is the way to go. Just thought I would offer some advice for anyone that is thinking of going to school to become an MA!

Excellent feedback Suzy!

I'd like to see more similar posts from all over the country. That's part of the reason why we have this web forum and why people surf in. They are looking for exactly this kind of info.
