Medication Administration Exam (MAE)

When you check in for the MAE, you will need to bring with you the following items: photo ID, pencils, eraser, and calculator.  Cell phones will not be allowed in the exam room so be sure to bring a regular calculator with you. Scientific calculators are not needed for the MAE.  A simple calculator will be sufficient.

If you are in the building before your designated check in time, please do not go to the check-in table or testing area until your assigned check-in time as the noise is disruptive to students currently taking the test.

It is very important to prepare for the MAE and do well on it!  Students must score at least 90% on their first or second attempts in order to continue with their clinical and corresponding lecture courses for the semester.  Students should make sure to review the MAE modules carefully in the meantime in order to be successful on the exam!
