« back to classes page
A Certified Medication Assistant II is able to deliver routine, regularly scheduled medication (as delegated by a licensed nurse) for individuals or groups of individuals with stable conditions which are administered on a routine basis and do not require determination of need, drug calculation, or dosage conversion.

A CMA II can be employed in a setting where the licensed nurse is either scheduled regularly or not regularly including Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Living Facilities and Basic Care Facilities.

If considering employment in a setting other than Nursing Facility, Basic Care Facility, or Assisted Living, contact the North Dakota Department of Health to determine if it is an allowable setting for a Certified Medication Assistant II to work in.

Class schedule:
  • Mondays and Wednesdays starting November 7 through November 30 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
    • No class Wednesday, November 16 or Wednesday, November 23.
    • On Monday, December 5 class will end at 11:30 AM.
  • December 5 - January 9
    • 32 hours of a clinical experience will be required. The instructor and program manager will work in conjunction with the student to determine the clinical schedule.

Please read:  Essential requirements of the course include mandatory attendance, the ability to lift a minimum of 50 pounds, an 8-hour clinical practice session with minimal rest periods, and a 32-hour clinical facility rotation. Books are included in the tuition fee.

Students must provide a copy of the following items to the instructor on the first day of class. Students who do not provide these items by the deadline will not be able to attend class and may incur a fee to be transferred to the next available class:
  • Printed proof of a negative TB test within the last 12 months.
  • Proof of an approved one-dose or two-dose COVID-19 vaccination that includes a record of vaccine, the date of vaccine administration, the lot number, and the location of where the vaccine was administered.
  • Proof of the seasonal flu vaccination (for classes beginning during the months of September through March).
  • A North Dakota CNA license and must be in good standing with the North Dakota Department of Health.

Students will be required to adhere to the policies of the clinical facility regarding the COVID-19 vaccination. This is not a BSC requirement, but a requirement of the clinical facility. Exemption requests must be inquired upon and are subject to review and approval by the clinical facility. The instructor and program manager will work in conjunction with the student to determine the clinical location and schedule. The dress code of the clinical location will be communicated and must be followed.

TB testing, seasonal flu and COVID-19 vaccinations are provided by Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health or the UND Center for Family Medicine.

Any student missing more than 8 hours of class time will be dropped out of the class regardless of the reason. Students should contact Continuing Education at 701-224-5600 with any questions.

Once all course work has been completed successfully, students will need to apply for their Certified Medication Assistant II license through the ND Department of Health. An application fee of $25 is payable at that time, directly to the ND Department of Health (credit card only).
