Providing safe medication administration is critical when caring for patients. This page provides all of the information you will need to take the Medication Administration Exam as well as the modules you will need to complete prior to taking the exam.
Medication Administration Exam (MAE)

When you check in for the MAE, you will need to bring with you the following items: photo ID, pencils, eraser, and calculator. Cell phones will not be allowed in the exam room so be sure to bring a regular calculator with you. Scientific calculators are not needed for the MAE. A simple calculator will be sufficient.

If you are in the building before your designated check in time, please do not go to the check-in table or testing area until your assigned check-in time as the noise is disruptive to students currently taking the test.
