Sixteen new students completed training in PCC’s Medication Technician course, a program that teaches students how to administer medication in adult care homes. The successful students are: Maryah Bowen, Brenda Davis, Cortney Fallen, Liliana Fernandez, Charletha Henderson, Erica Henderson, Kenisha Hubbard, Paulina Logan, Ethel Long, Kristina Majors, Amanda Mitchell, Cassandra Morrison, Alexis Pyles, Anjelica Smith, Blair Taylor, and Kelsi Williamson.

The two Medication Technician classes were taught on PCC’s Caswell County Campus by Sherba Williams. During the 24 hour course, students were taught how to properly prepare and administer medications. This skill allows graduates to work for assisted living facilities, group homes, and home health care agencies. Students are eligible for listing on the North Carolina Adult Care Medication Aide Listing upon their successful completion of the course and competency evaluation.

The next Medication Technician class will be offered in Person County on August 8 – 11. Classes will be held Monday – Thursday, 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

To help students determine if the healthcare field is for them, PCC offers Orientation to Healthcare Careers on the Caswell County Campus, as well. This course will be offered again on July 12 – July 20, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
