A certified medication assistant is responsible for assisting a licensed nurse with the safe administration of medication. The minimal requirements for this position, as for a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), are the ability to read, speak, and write English; hold a current Health Care Provider CPR card; and demonstrate basic mathematics skills. If a CNA has plead guilty or been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, he/she is unable to become a certified medication assistant. After completing required training, a CNA earns the title of a certified medication assistant.
