Piedmont Virginia Community College’s Workforce Services Division will host an information session for its noncredit medication aide course on Friday, March 23, 2018, at PVCC’s Jefferson School Center, located at 233 Fourth Street NW in Charlottesville.

The session will begin at 5 p.m. and will focus on PVCC’s noncredit medication aide training class, which prepares students to take the Virginia exam to become a registered medication aide (RMA). Through the program, students learn about the safe administration of medication, prepared instillations and treatments; documentation, storage and disposal of medications; as well as legal and ethical issues and an introduction to pharmacology.

At the session, attendees will learn about financial aid options, as well as program expectations and requirements. The session will also provide information about PVCC’s noncredit nurse aide course, which prepares students to take the Virginia exam to become a certified nurse aide (CNA).

This session is free and is open to the public. For more information, contact JoAnna Collins, health care program manager for PVCC’s Workforce Services Division, at jcollins@pvcc.edu or by calling 434.961.5354.
