MAP 003 MEDICATION AIDE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

This 40-hour course provides classroom instruction and lab experience in the role, responsibilities and skills necessary to provide routine medications to clients, with a special emphasis on the aging client. The primary objectives of the course are to: recognize the 10 basic competencies needed in order to safely provide another person with his/her medications in accordance with the Nebraska Medication Aide Act; identify specific drug families, actions, side-effects and use this knowledge to treat or prevent disease; and recognize the responsibility of the medication aide in relation to PRN medication, providing medications by vaginal, rectal, tube or inhaled routes; and providing insulin by injection. Students who successfully complete the course are eligible to take the competency examinations to qualify for placement on the state of Nebraska Medication Aide Registry. After placement on the registry, nursing assistants have the opportunity to work with clients of diverse ages in healthcare facilities such as nursing homes, assisted living facilities, intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded, schools, child care settings or even client homes. Admissions criteria and fees are detailed in appropriate sections (Admissions, Fees) of this catalog. Class dates and times are varied. Preregistration, proof of active status on the Nebraska Nurse Aide registry; proof of American Heart Association Basic Life Support for the HealthCare Provider; proof of required immunizations and completed physical; the completed Campus Health service Questionnaire.
