A Medical Assistant works in medical offices, or group practices, sometimes health clinics, and hospitals under the direct supervision of a medical doctor or licensed healthcare practitioner. Medical assistants in the USA are not required to be certified, so a certified medical assistant is a medical assistant that voluntarily sat for the certification exam (AAMA) to earn the credentials of a Certified Medical Assistant, thus showing credibility and professionalism. A Nurses Aide works primarily in hospitals or nursing homes for the elderly under the direct supervision of a RN or LPN nurse. In the same manner as the medical assistant, the Nurses Aide has voluntarily taken the certification exam to earn the credential of being certified.
