CMAs (AAMA) in Nursing Homes

Q. Can CMAs (AAMA) perform clinical duties in nursing homes?

A. Essentially, only if they become CNAs—either by taking the short course and passing the test to become a certified nursing assistant, or by being exempted from parts of the course and test by virtue of their medical assisting education and credential.
