Delegation to Unlicensed School Personnel, What Are the Issues?

04-20-2017 14:43

Students attending school today include an increasing number of children with special health care needs. The shortage of school nurses available to provide necessary school health services may require delegation of nursing tasks in order for the student to attend school or school sponsored activities.. Nursing Practice laws differ from state to state, including compact states; this includes the delegation of healthcare services to unlicensed school personnel. Review of state laws, regulations and nursing scope of practice is critical when planning and delegating nursing health services in the school setting and also on out-of-state field trips.
