10/15-Hour Training Course for Adult Care Homes

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services developed standardized training courses to assist qualified instructors to train unlicensed staff who will administer medications to residents in Adult Care Homes.

The 10-hour training course builds upon content in the initial 5-hour training course and developed as a refresher for the employee. The design of the course is for a larger class than the 5-hour training course but still limited in size to allow for interactive activities and practice of safe medication administration skills.

The 15-hour training course was developed as another option to meet the requirements of the 5-hour and 10-hour training mandated by legislation. The course provides 10 hours of classroom instruction and 5 hours of clinical skills validation. The design of the course is for a larger class than the 5-hour training course but limited in size to allow for lots of practice and integration of safe medication administration skills.
