Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to this so if I should add any more details let me know. I'm currently interested in becoming a Medical Assistant, and there are a bunch of colleges and programs here in NYC. The thing is, I'm low on money, I really don't want to take out loans, and I NEED to go to a program or school where I will be recognized as a full time student (because of my mom's health insurance). I honestly want to go to a program where I can complete my curriculum in a year or so, but I find that a lot of these programs are not accredited. Does this really matter when it comes to finding a job in NYC? Are there any schools that are highly recommended? Thanks in advance!
