Medication Administration Class

The Power of Learning


Get Certified at Lakeview Pharmacy

The Simple Act of Caring is Heroic.”  However, as professionals in the field, we all know caring is not always a simple act. There is red tape to cut through, hurdles to leap and certifications to achieve. Let us help you get state-certified properly and swiftly, so you can do what you do best.

The Medication Administration Class is required by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Division of Quality Assurance (DQA). DHS Rule 83.20 allows only personnel who successfully complete the class to administer medications in a Community Based Residential Facility, under certain conditions.

At Lakeview Pharmacy we offer a two-day Medication Administration Class to get professional caregivers on the fast track to earning their certification. Each day is a seven-hour session and we provide all the necessary training materials. Participants are required to attend all training sessions both days and pass the final quiz with a score of 90% or better. Those who do not pass are given one additional test on the same day, however, if they do not receive a score of at least 90%, they must re-register, re-pay and re-take the course.
