I’m currently a medical assistant and I’m thinking about going back to school to become a Echocardiogram tech. The only problem is that all the programs around me are 8-5 and I still need to work my job to make sure my family is taken care of. Any advice ? I don’t want to be a medical assistant because of the salary is so low I don’t know how some people can be a MA for so many years.

If you think the salary is low, it shouldn't be that hard to find another job that will pay you similarly but offers you more flexibility. Another option is to save enough to quit for the length of the program and then make some extra money working odd jobs around your schedule.

My program was an accelerated 18 months. It was hard but doable. I was a CNA at the time and they were flexible with my schedule. It’s doable if you want to make the sacrifice. Like A1 said, you would want to do other jobs especially if they can’t work with your school schedule. If that’s what you want, you will make it work, the time will go by quickly. All the best. DM me if you have questions.

We have some around us that are accelerated and offer programs at night so look a little more and try to find those.

Is it a red flag if my company creates a new entry level role with no career path or trajectory? And when asked, “how can this role grow”? It’s “I don’t know”. Do many companies do this? It seems a bit fishy to have no structure for promotions.
