Frequently asked questions

What is a Qualified Medication Aide?

A Qualified Medication Aide (QMA) is a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who has completed more training in order to be able to give medication to patients. QMA programs require that you already have your CNA license and may have additional requirements on top of that. For example, Texas requires that you've worked at least 90 days at a nursing home or Getting your QMA certification can give you a small pay bump over a CNA.
