Pharmacology

Course Description

Our course is intended to satisfy the BVNPT’s “Method 3” requirement for CNAs, with documented bedside nursing experience, to be allowed to challenge the state exam for Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs).  This course covers the required knowledge of drug interactions, dosage computation, as well as preparing and administering medication.

The BVNPT’s Method 3 is not intended to be a shortcut avoiding formal LVN education, but is offered as an alternative for those who have documented experience in the field and where formal training would be redundant. In order to complete the application to the BVNPT, you will need proof of taking a pharmacology course. You may review the list of application requirements on the BVNPT’s website.
