These requirements include but are not limited to policy development, sufficient school nurses to provide supervision to unlicensed personnel, and attendance by the school nurses leader or nurse contact at a program on Management of Medication Administration in the School Setting. This train-the-trainer program is designed for school nurses who are responsible for training unlicensed school personnel to administer medications and is offered by the Department.
