—————-Course Participation through Virtual Platform 

Days 1 through 5- 8:30 am to 4:30 pm each day

 

This training requires the student to attend all the virtual classes and complete all assignments to obtain the CRMA certification.  If the student misses a day, they will have to take the entire course over.  The course is spread out over five days.  This does not mean consecutive days.  Each day will consist of a lecture.  Some days it may be most of the day.  Students are expected to be on time each day.  In addition, the student will be required to watch several videos showing a demonstration of proper technique for various tasks.  There are two research assignments due by 4:30 pm on Day 4.   There are three quizzes and a final exam which are all closed book and are completed on-line through UMU.com.  The instructor will review all expectations on the first day of class.

Expectations of participants upon completion of the online course.

Clinical:  Completed with a Registered Nurse- instructions provided to students for the RN.

 

The participant must successfully complete 3 mock medication passes (or 3 live med passes) and demonstrate taking vital signs with 100% accuracy under the observation of a Registered Nurse according to the CRMA Medication Administration Skills Checklist.  

 

Procedure:  The student is to demonstrate administering medications to 3 different individuals. NO COACHING IS ALLOWED. The RN is to observe only, and IMMEDIATELY STOP the medication administration process if something incorrect is about to happen. If the RN stops the medication administration process, the participant will be allowed to regroup and begin a new medication administration.  The student may repeat this component twice, for a total of three attempts of three passes before a “fail” grade will be assigned.  The RN will complete the CRMA Medication Administration Skills Checklist during these three med passes.  

The mock med passes may be done via FaceTime or another virtual format that the RN chooses.  The RN will also observe (in person) and verify the student accurately performing vital signs and document it on the same checklist.  The RN then signs his/her name and dates the form, and the student does the same.  This form, along with a copy of the RN’s license, is returned to the instructor for submission to the State of Maine within forty-five (45) days of the last day of class.    

 

The instructor will provide the students with bubble packs for their 3 mock medication passes if needed and requested by the student and/or RN.  Three (3) live med passes may be completed instead of mock med passes.  The vital signs must be done in person so the RN can verify the accuracy of the numbers the student obtained.                                                                                                   Updated: 2/11/21 CB
