Im a CNA and im also in pre-nursing..
I know there is a lot of talk about how nurses HATE medication aides so don't slam me with that please..
I am enrolled in a med aide course starting in march and Im really excited about all the information I will be learning. I feel like I will learn just the tip of the pharmacology iceberg along with conversions and about certain meds and reactions, side effects and all of that.
What meds do medication aides help pass??? Do they do injections? What is a normal shift of being a medication aide like?
Another reason for taking this class is so I can have it on my application to nursing school, along with being an CNA and have taken basic arrhythmia. I really just want a head start with meds. thats really all.
I feel like the more I learn now the easier nursing school will be.
Thanks for your thoughts (in advance)
