Successful completion of PVCC’s Medication Aide Training Program meets the requirements of the Virginia Board of Nursing for a student to be eligible to sit for the state exam to become a Registered Medication Aide (RMA). This program will cover topics such as legal and ethical issues; preparing for safe administration of medication; introduction to pharmacology; administration of prepared instillations and treatments (oral medications, eye, ear, nose etc.); documentation, storage, and disposal of medications; special issues in medication administration; and insulin administration. Students will be required to have 100% attendance in both class and clinical, provide a copy of their active, unrestricted Virginia CNA certificate, and submit a background check, drug screen, and PPD (negative TB testing) prior to start of class.
