Dakota Travel Nurse:  Medication Assistant II Class

Testing Policy for Classroom Tests

Effective date: 12/1/18

The CMA II has the legal responsibility to safely administer medications to a resident in the nursing home. If an error occurs while administering medication the consequence to a resident could be severe and result in the hospitalization or death of a resident. Because of the responsibility of a CMAII the following policy will apply: To pass the class you will have to study at home and it is highly advisable you do not work during the duration of the class. Working during class may decrease your chance of success. A score of at least 85% is required on each test.  The passing test scores are determined by the North Dakota Health Department and DTN must follow the health department regulations.
