  • Health unit coordinators prepare medical records
    for new patients, input healthcare data, maintain
    patient charts and perform other non-clinical
    tasks related to patient admission and discharge.
    Graduates can also work as receptionists in a
    hospital or other healthcare setting.
  • Graduates can find careers as medical
    secretaries, unit clerks, medical receptionists
    and health unit coordinators. These positions can
    be found in hospitals, medical-surgical units,
    dental offices, nursing homes, doctors offices,
    veterinary clinics and laboratories.
  • The Certified Medical Administrative Assistant
    (CMAA) is a nationally recognized certification
    for Medical Administrative Assistants. It
    demonstrates your ability to perform routine
    administrative tasks in a physicians office or
    clinic to keep it running efficiently. Medical
    Administrative Assistants are also known as
    Medical Office Secretaries and Medical Office

  • A Health Unit Coordinator earns an average wage
    of 13.72 per hour. Most people move on to other
    jobs if they have more than 20 years' experience
    in this field.
  • If a medical administrative assistant has less
    than a year of experience they get paid less. An
    hourly pay rate between 8.00 and 12.00 is
    typical. This works out to between 18 and 20
    thousand dollars a year. This is based on working
    40 hours per week. A medical administrative
    assistant with 15 or more years of experience
    makes more money. An experienced medical
    administrative assistant can make around
    17.00-19.00 an hour. That comes out to almost
    40,000 a year. The time in the job matters.

  • The CMAA final exam consists of 110 multiple
    choice questions. Testing candidates are allowed
    one hour and fifty minutes to take the exam. The
    basic breakdown of the exam is 20 items covering
    risk management, 30 items covering financial
    procedures, and 50 items covering office
  • The questions in the exam are weighted, meaning
    some questions are worth more points than others.
    You must score 390 or better to pass the exam
  • The Health Unit Coordinator Certification
    Examination measures knowledge and skills in
    areas of job performance that the NAHUC
    Certification Board regards as essential. There
    are 120 questions. The first 20 questions are
    pre-test questions that are not scored. There are
    100 scored, comprehensive questions based on
    job-related objectives to answer in the two and
    one-half hour period.
  • All tests are reported as scaled scores to
    insure that all candidates have the same
    advantage regardless of which test they take. The
    questions are multiple choice and are adjusted
    for minor differences in difficulty

  • Certified Nursing Assistant
  • A certified nursing assistant, or CNA, helps
    patients or clients with healthcare needs under
    the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a
    Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Also known as a
    Nursing Assistant (NA) a Patient Care Assistant
    (PCA) or a State Tested Nurse Aid (STNA), the
    individual who carries this title needs strong
    work ethic and ability, but issues of liability
    and legality prevent CNAs from performing certain

What does a CNA do?
  • Nursing assistants can work in a wide variety of
    settings nursing homes, hospitals, adult day
    care centers, personal homes and assisted living
    facilities all require nursing assistants to act
    as a helpful liaison between the RN or LPN and
    the patient. In many cases, the nursing assistant
    serves as the RNs or LPNs eyes and ears, and
    relays information between many patients and one
    or two RNs.
  • The nursing assistant fulfills basic quality of
    life needs for patients of any age, ethnicity or
    gender in residential nursing care facilities or
    outpatient clinics. Since nursing assistants have
    daily contact with patients, they are gatherers
    of vital information about the patients
    conditions, which they must then transmit to
    their supervisors. A CNAs workload can become
    intense and fast-paced, but the human contact and
    ability to help those in medical need is a strong
    motivating factor. A desire to help people and
    compassion for patients can help a nurses
    assistant get through difficult days.

CNAs and the Nursing Industry
  • Because so many nurses aides want to move up
    into more involved medical careers, there is a
    high rate of turnover for CNA positions. This
    means it is fairly easy to find a job as a CNA,
    but many who start out in this career do not stay
    in it for life. The demand for CNAs is high,
    especially among those institutions that provide
    continuing care and assisted living for the
    elderly. Many health care facilities recognize
    the important role that a qualified and
    compassionate CNA can play in their quality of
    care offered. Additionally, a CNA can find
    support through organizations such as the
    National Association of Health Care Assistants.

Daily Responsibilities of CNAs
  • Administer medications or treatments, such as
    catheterizations, suppositories, irrigations,
    enemas, massages, or douches, as directed by a
    physician or nurse.
  • Clean and sanitize patient rooms, bathrooms,
    examination rooms, or other patient areas.
  • Document or otherwise report observations of
    patient behavior, complaints, or physical
    symptoms to nurses.
  • Apply clean dressings, slings, stockings, or
    support bandages, under direction of nurse or
  • Clearly, the duties of a CNA are not glamorous,
    but the position is highly suited for people who
    arei interested in helping to cure illness,
    mitigate misery, and generally add to the
    wellbeing of other people at the time they need
    it most.

CNA Pay Benefits
  • CNAs typically earn an hourly wage rather than an
    annual salary, so your pay will fluctuate
    depending on whether you take a few hours here
    and there, steadily work full time, or constantly
    pull 60 hour weeks. According to The BLS, the
    median hourly wage for CNAs was 11.46 in May
    2008. Median wages for similar or related careers
    were as follows
  • Medical Assistants 28,300 (annual)
  • Registered Nurses 62,450 (annual)
  • Home Health Aides 9.22 (hourly)
  • Location can be a major influencing factor in how
    much you earn in any of the above jobs, and how
    many jobs are available in the first place. The
    chart below shows data from The BLS about how
    many medical assistant jobs are available in the
    five states with highest employment in that

CNA Test
  • You must pass both the clinical skills and
    written exams within 2 years of your first test
    date. If you do not pass both exams within 2
    years, you will have to take both exams again to
    be certified. Results more than 2 years old are
    not valid. In addition, if you fail either the
    clinical skills or written exam 3 times in that
    2- year period, you will be required to attend a
    state approved training program before testing on
    both parts of the exam again.
  • The Florida Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
    Exam consists of two separate tests The Clinical
    Skills Test and the Written (Knowledge) Test. You
    are not required to pass one test before taking
    the other.

CNA Test Results
  • 2012-2013- 89 Pass rate (76 passed)
  • 2011-2012- 77 passed 11 failed
  • 2010- 2011- 63 passed 7 failed

EKG Tech
  • As a Certified EKG Technician, youll operate
    machines that record the electrical activity of a
    patients heart. EKG rhythms provide important
    data for the diagnosis of heart conditions. As a
    CET, you may perform some or all of the following
  • Set up and administer EKGs, stress tests
  • Prepare patients for Holter, or ambulatory
  • Edit and deliver final test results to physicians
    for analysis
  • Schedule appointments
  • Transcribe physicians' interpretations
  • Benefits to obtaining an EKG Technician
    Certification may include more job
    opportunities, an increased pay scale, job
    security, and increased subject matter expertise.

EKG Tech Education
  • EKG techs need at least a high school diploma,
    according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    However, employers like to see that students have
    gone above and beyond the minimum requirements,
    says Tammy Renner, Rasmussen Colleges national
    medical laboratory technician program director.
    So if you want to stand out, consider pursuing
    further education.
  • Most colleges with an EKG tech program offer a
    two-year associates degree or a certificate,
    which can be completed in as few as nine months.
    Certificates offer field-specific courses and
    less general education classes, which means
    youll spend more time on the subject in which
    youre actually interested.
  • No matter whether you earn an associates degree
    or certificate, earning an EKG tech credential is
    usually the next step. While an EKG Technician
    Certification from the National Healthcareer
    Association isnt required to get a job, its
    something employers look for, Renner says. After
    you pass the exam youll be a Certified EKG

EKG technician salary
  • The amount of an EKG technician salary depends on
    many different factors. Some factors that affect
    how much money they make include where they work,
    level of experience on the job, geographic
    location and sex of the employee. The salary also
    varies with level of training or education.
  • In general, the median national salary of an EKG
    technician is reported to be around 34,000. The
    lowest 10th percentile earns about 26,000 and
    the highest 10th percentile about 43,000 per
    year. For the middle 50 of the workforce, they
    earn between 30,000 and 39,000 per year.
