NASN’s School Nursing Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guideline: Medication Administration in Schools, provides a uniform guideline for administering medication in schools, including evidence-based recommendations for the safe care of Pre-K-12 students who receive medications during the day. The School Nursing Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guideline: Medication Administration in Schools Implementation Toolkit includes sample policies, training and delegation forms and templates, checklists and protocols, and more and will help school nurses implement those recommendations.
