Working as a Medical Assistant is an excellent option for stay-at-home moms looking to jump back into the workforce. Not only does this profession highlight their already developed skills, including organizational tasks and caring for those who need help, it gives them the flexibility to do it on their own terms.

Here are 5 reasons why starting a career as a medical assistant is a great option for stay-at-home moms:

Training on your time

The 36-week program at Ayers Career College is a great option for students with families and other responsibilities. In fact, the schedule shouldn’t impact your children’s lives at all. Day classes meet from 8:30 am to 1:50 pm, giving you time to attend to your before- and after-school activities.

Career excitement

While being a stay-at-home mom is one of the most respected and rewarding careers out there, working as a Medical Assistant also has its benefits. Medical Assistants are essential in the healthcare community; assistants work with patients on a daily basis, ensuring their comfort and happiness while helping promote a healthier future.

Supplemental income

Because this job is in high demand, it has excellent stability and pay. The average salary for a Medical Assistant is $32,480, with plenty of room for growth through advanced degrees and certifications, which can give you and your family financial freedom and stability. The employment in this area is expected to grow by 29 percent—much faster than other occupations. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of this growing field.

Flexible work environment

Most Medical Assistants work in hospitals or care centers, which means there is a wide variety of shift types and schedules. Because your family should always come first, becoming a Medical Assistant is a great career for those who need flexibility in their hours. Though shifts can include swing shifts, weekends, and holidays, having the opportunity to earn overtime and make your own schedule outweighs the cons.

Perfect trait requirements

Best of all, stay-at-home moms already possess the skills necessary to be successful in this field, including being compassionate, organized, adaptable, a good listener, and being prepared for anything. Medical Assistants love helping others and want to be useful and impactful in their careers—just like loving mothers in their home lives. The technical skills will come through education, but programs cannot teach the personal traits Medical Assistants need to be successful, and as a stay-at-home mother, you’re already a step ahead.
