Welcome to the official website of the Nebraska Society of Medical Assistants (NSMA) of the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA).

The Mission of the American Association of Medical Assistants is to provide the medical assistant professional with education, certification, credential acknowledgment, networking opportunities, scope-of-practice protection, and advocacy for quality patient-centered health care.

What is a Certified Medical Assistant (AAMA)? Medical assistants work alongside physicians, mainly in outpatient or ambulatory care facilities, such as medical offices and clinics. Medical assistants are cross-trained to perform administrative and clinical duties.

To become a Certified, Medical Assistants can take the AAMA Certification Exam.    The credential must be recertified every 60 months by continuing education or re-examination.
