What is a QMA?

A qualified medication aide is a certified nurse aide (CNA) who has completed additional training, annual in-service training, and demonstrated competency while dispensing and passing medications and or applying/administrating treatments under the direct supervision of a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse. The Qualified Medication Aide Registration Program ensures that qualified medication aides meet the qualifications for a qualified medication aide and are appropriately registered on the Aide Registry. The program administers the Aide Registry.
