Local women graduate from Medication Assistant Certification program

Special to the Enquirer 

Four local women recently graduated from a new program being offered through Calhoun Community College’s Workforce Solutions division.  

The Medication Assistant Certification program is taught on site at USA Healthcare. The program allows nursing assistants to administer certain routine medications to residents in skilled nursing facilities under the direct supervision of a licensed nurse, according to Stephanie Coleman, community relations director of USA Healthcare.  

USA Healthcare, in collaboration with Calhoun Community College, held the first MAC training session in November 2020. The four recent graduates are Madison Williams, Tiffany Gulley, Stacie Roberson and Mundi Williams. 

“The MAC training program is a 100-hour training course, which takes place over a three-week period of time,” Coleman explained. Some of the course content includes students’ roles as MA-C, medication dosing and administration, medication side effects, medication storage and disposal, ethics and more.” 

Upon completion of the program, participants submitted an application to the Alabama Board of Nursing to request authorization to test. The first four people to sit for the test were employees of USA Healthcare. 

“We are proud to say these four participants have successfully passed their exam and are working under the guidelines of their new certification at Falkville Health and Rehab,” Coleman said.  

“We are really excited about this program,” Coleman added. “It will provide additional support to the nurses and additional comfort to the residents of skilled nursing facilities.”
