Considering MA school in Florida(seminole county)

Hello to all who read-
I am a 30 + stay at home mother of two and after 6 years at home I am ready to go back to work. I am very interested in MA however I am finding that the colleges are charging 11,000 - 9,500 for this 9 - 10 month class. In searching the jobs adds entry level pay is 11.00 an hour. When I left my job to stay home I was making 14.00 an hour with no college traing . . . .any advice?!?!?!
I am wanting to work for a private practice and not a hospital setting.

You may want talk to the guidance counselor at the school. There are many avenues in health care. You could go for medical transcription, billing, lab technician etc.. all in a physicians office with varying wages. You could even be a health unit coordinator in a hospital with a 3 month course.

Your Professional Title/Credentials: CNA/RMA/LPN
