This course is designed to meet the training requirements for becoming qualified to be a Medication Aide. However, students wishing to test for listing on the Medication Aide Registry must also be currently listed as a Nurse Aide I on the Nurse Aide Registry.
The course will cover the six rights of medication administration for non-licensed personnel. Topics will include medication administration via the oral, topical and instillation routes, medical asepsis, hand hygiene, terminology, and legal implications. Upon completion, students also listed on the Nurse Aide Registry as an NAI should be able to take the competency exam and demonstrate skills necessary to qualify for listing on the North Carolina Medication Aide Registry.
