Would experience as a CNA be looked at as experience?

A hypothetical here.. I am planning to get my CNA and work in a LTC facility while pursuing MA. Is there a chance that experience as a CNA would be looked at when they require experience? I have seen job openings in my area for medical assisting that don't even require a MA training.. Just a CNA as the requirement.
I am just sooo confused about a lot of stuff!! And you can't ask the schools because they want to sell you the program.

Amy, get your cna and work in a LTC facility--DO NOT bother becoming a medical assistant-the mony you will spend and the time it takes--you could become an LPN and make more money-then on to RN and get the big bucks. Forget MA--no jobs and a waste of time Linda
