Medication Technician Training Program

The Medication Technician Training Program will prepare care providers to safely administer medications to residents in harmony with the specific rules and guidelines set forth by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Health Care Quality and the Maryland Board of Nursing.


Because medication administration is a nursing act, medication technicians practice under the supervision and direction of the registered nurse case manager/delegating nurse.

  • Medication administration techniques
