Expectations of participants upon completion of the on-line course.


Clinical:  Completed with a Registered Nurse


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 Face Time 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.
