On April 19, 2017 the
Board of Health adopted our proposed changes to Chapter 24, Medication
Administration Regulations. The new rules will become effectiveJuly 1, 2017to coincide with the effective date of
some of the legislative changes.
What has changed: CDPHE
will no longer contract with Vendors/Instructors to teach theMedication Administration Course. Instead, CDPHE will now designate Approved
Training Entities (ATE). Beginning April 1, 2017 those interested in becoming
an ATE can submit an application, curriculum, content and testing for approval.
Once the ATE has received written notification of approval from the department they
may start teaching beginning 7/1/17.
