What’s “higher up” a medical assistant or a CNA?

Like I know an RN is the highest level job between the two, but what’s the next higher up position between being an CNA and a medical assistant

    According to me, medical assistant and CNA have good opportunities in the healthcare field. For that, you have completed the course from a well-established institute like AIHT Education. It is providing the certificate after the completion of every course because when you are looking for a job opportunities experience is much needed.

    In this COVID-19 pandemic, AIHT Education is providing the training online for courses.

    Like someone else mentioned, medical assistants are not in the nursing hierarchy.

    I think CNA would be better for most, because you can build on it. On the other hand, MA usually involves less "dirty" work. Both are relatively low-paying.

    About the same

    CNAs are the bottom rung of nursing 

    MAs are the bottom rung of other medical settings

      but you cant build on MA directly to become higher with the medical field, duties dont translate

    Neither, they are laterally relatively equal, unlicensed and with different scope of practice.  MAs are not in the nursing hierarchy at all.  Medical assistant is terminal, there is nothing directly higher.

    They’re both unlicensed personnel. One is not higher than the other. One cannot give orders to another.

    CNA.   Then move on to LVN.

    Not everything is a hierarchy.

    There are lateral job duties. 

    It would be your employer's responsibility to determine your companies supervisory structure.

    There are very few medical assistants just like the last time you asked less than an hour ago. Maybe you can find a 7th grader to teach you to google search instead of bothering strangers?
