At Harmony Health Career Training LLC, a 24-hour training course is offered for Certified Nursing Assistants who wish to become medication aides in skilled nursing facilities. Our Certified Medication Aide course provides students with the skills and knowledge required for safe medication administration in long-term care communities.

The primary role of a medication aide is to assist the licensed nurse (RN or LPN) in administering medications, providing care to patients, and completing other assigned nursing tasks allowed by state law. Students are trained in infection control strategies, medication administration techniques, understanding medication routes, and basic pharmacology.

This course includes skills lab and classroom experiences.

Differences between a 15hr Med Aide vs. 24hr Med Aide

-The role of Med “Tech” to administer medications does not exist in NC. Both Med Aides either 15hr or 24hr trained are called Medication Aides.

-15hr Med Aide course- covers adult care homes, family care homes, group homes, assisted living facilities. Most people refer to this course as Med Tech training.

-24hr Med Aide course- covers skilled nursing/long term care facilities only.

-The two courses do NOT cover each other.

-If you are listed on North Carolina’s Nurse Aide I Registry with no substantial findings you can take both courses.

-If you are not a Nurse Aide I you are only eligible to take the 15hr Med Aide course.

-Medication Administration in a hospital is a LPN or RN task.

-Both require successfully passing a state test exam offered by Credentia.

-Yes, you can take the 15hr adult care home state exam without going through a course BUT when facility state licensure agencies review Medication Aide employee files you are required to have a course completion certificate please make sure your employer can show proof of you completing a course or completion of modules through your facility pharmacy.
