medication aide?

  1. Hello everyone I love this site I have literally stayed on this site until I got sleepy last night and first thing this morning I am back again. OoooooooH, what a wonderful site. Okay, my question: Medication Aides? How do you become one? Is it a good idea?

    I found being a medication aide helped me with nursing school. I had already knew the meds and how to administer them, along with the side effects to watch for.
