Medication Administration for Unlicensed Personnel or Medication Assistant II Course

This course is designed to train unlicensed personnel from various settings (i.e., nursing homes, boarding care homes, group homes, schools, etc.) in North Dakota or Minnesota who will be administering medications.

The 48-hour classroom/lab course meets Minnesota requirements for medication administration. This 48-hour course, plus an additional 32-hour clinical component (following the classroom portion), meets North Dakota requirements as a Medication Assistant II. Students must be sponsored by their employing North Dakota facility to participate in the clinical component. Students may elect to take the 48-hour classroom/lab instruction only. The 32-hour clinical component could then be completed at a later date (within 6 months) after securing a sponsoring North Dakota facility through employment. This course can be taught in your community. Call or Email Amber Reed at 218.299.6586 for details.

Prerequisite: Current Minnesota Nursing Assistant or North Dakota Certified Nursing Assistant registry status. Minnesota Department of Health Nursing Home Rules also state unlicensed nursing personnel who administer medications in a Minnesota nursing home must have completed a nursing assistant training program approved by the Minnesota Department of Health.
