Medication Assistant Endorsement Program (CNAs Only)

About our course

Health Professionals Institute is proud to announce that we are the first school in Washington State to be approved to teach classes for the new Medication Assistant endorsement certification (MA-C). 


This certification allows CNAs to pass routine medications under the supervision of an RN. Obtaining this certification alleviates pressure from the floor nurse, allowing them more time to assess clients, perform treatments, and document care. Having an MC-A complete routine chores cuts costs and eases budget stress. 


We are excited to be able to offer this program to CNAs and skilled nursing facilities. More than thirty states already have MA-C programs in place and we are thrilled to be able to offer this program here in Washington.
