Which states have medication aides?

  1. Just got to Indiana and low and behold they have something I never knew existed, medication aides. Does anyone have a list of all the states that have medication aides? As a new travel nurse I'd like to know which other states have these, so I can take this into consideration when choosing my next travel assignment.:smackingf

    Arkansas has "medication assistive persons" who are certified by the board to administer certain non-prescriptive drugs and legend drugs in designated facilities

    If I am not mistaken, Ohio also uses medication aides. However, the state refers to them as 'medication techs'.
