Other comments

You will have hands on training with a classroom filled with other individuals there to learn as well as you are. I learned how to administer meds the correct way and how to give them correctly as well. The hardest part off the training was basically pushing myself harder than i should have only because if you pay attention you will catch on very fast and it will stick within you in whatever job you may have. There were no big I and little you we were all there for the same thing learning the most important thing when it comes to administer meds.
