The Certified Medicine Aide (CMA) Program is a specific career ladder course for geriatric nursing assistants currently working in long term care. Students who complete the CMA program work with the nursing staff in the long term care facility to administer medications and topical treatments to nursing home residents. Becoming a CMA is an intermediate career step between being geriatric nursing assistant (GNA) and licensed practical nurse (LPN) or registered nurse (RN).
