A Certified Medication Aide is a CNA who has had additional training and is authorized to administer non-injectable medications safely, legally, and accurately, as well as carry out related duties and responsibilities in healthcare settings. CMAs prepare and administer routine medications to patients; stock and maintain a sufficient drug inventory to ensure adequate supplies; and document the administration and effectiveness of medications, taking note of any adverse side effects. In Oregon, Certified Medication Aides must complete an OSBN-approved medication aide training program, pass a competency examination approved by the OSBN, and receive CMA certification before administering medications.
