BCTC Winchester offers more health care program options

Because of student interest and need in the medical community, Bluegrass Community and Technical College Winchester-Clark County Campus will offer the Kentucky Medication Aide (KMA) course this fall.

The KMA course prepares the Medicaid Nurse Aide to administer specific medications in a long-term care facility, as delegated and supervised by a licensed nurse.

The KMA program is part of increasing health care programming at BCTC Winchester to serve Clark Regional Medical Center and other local health care providers.

“Offering the Kentucky Medication Aide (KMA) certificate in Winchester is another step in growing our healthcare programs at the Winchester-Clark County Campus,” Campus Director Bruce Manley said. “We were able to purchase the equipment for this certificate thanks to several generous donors in our community. This educational opportunity shows the generosity of Winchester.”

The Kentucky Medication Aide course is a five-credit-hour hybrid format with in-person and online instruction. The class is offered from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Aug. 19 through Oct. 11.

This course is eligible for the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship, which means an eligible student could take the course for free and begin a new career in health care.

For more information, visit the Kentucky Medication Aide web page on the BCTC website. If you would like to speak to someone about enrolling in the program call 859-737-3098.
