Medication Aide Certification Examination (MACE)



The MACE is a national medication aide certification exam typically administered to nurse aides who choose to receive additional training to become certified medication aides. NCSBN develops the MACE and administers the computer-based exam with the contractual assistance of Pearson VUE.  Once certified, these medication aides serve an important role in hospitals and long-term care facilities by helping distribute medications and monitoring for adverse reactions.


A list of contact information for contributing medication aide programs can found in the Directory of Medication Aide Programs.
