Medication Nursing Assistant Training in New Hampshire

In New Hampshire a Medication Nursing Assistant (MNA) is a Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA) who has completed a Board approved medication administration program conducted by a Board approved Registered Nurse. Board approved medication administration programs must offer a minimum of 30 hours of theoretical content and 30 hours of clinical content.

In order to qualify as a student to take a Board approved medication administration program, there are strict criteria. The LNA must have the following qualifications:

  • he/she must hold a valid and unrestricted nursing assistant license,
  • he/she have been employed as a LNA within the past 5 years for an equivalent of 2 years of full time employment, and
  • he/she must possess proficiency in English and basic math.
  • The prospective MNA student must state their desire to be proficient in the administration of medications and submit two character references from an employer affirming their honesty, integrity, compassion and enthusiasm for nursing-related activities.
  • The prospective student may not have a history of felony conviction and is expected to comply with the application and tuition requirements of the sponsoring institution.

Upon completion of a Board approved medication administration program, the LNA must apply to the Board of Nursing and be issued a "Certificate" to administer medications.

Certification as a MNA allows the LNA to administer medications under the supervision of a RN/LPN to "stable" clients.
