I have been working as a clinical medical assistant at an orthopedic office for 1.5 years. I do have a bachelors degree in Bio. Work recently needed me to become certified, so I did. (they did pay for the test through NHA). So, I am now certified and they didn't automatically give a pay raise (what employer would these days?...), but I deserve one so I am going to ask for one.
