how hard is MA school?

I am thinking about going to a MA school, and I wanted to know how hard it is? I started LPN school ans it was very difficult. I live in Nashville, Tennessee. Has anyone went to a MA school around here.

MA school is intense, but not as bad as LPN school in my opinion. I just finished my first semester of ADN school. The A&P isn't as involved, and there aren't as many skills to learn. The lab portion is labor intensive though, and I really disliked the medical bookkeeping.
