School Nurses- We are in the midst of the legislative session. I am sharing bills I am following. The stance is my personal stance although ASNC has been consulted. How a Bill Becomes a Law is helpful in demonstrating the legislative process
HB 5170- Requires the word" voluntarily" be eliminated for glucagon administration. Nurses know that delegation requires the person to be willing and able to perform a task or administer medication. OPPOSE
HB 5916- Requires 24 hour written notice to parents prior to vaccine administration. Would create barrier to entry to school by delaying vaccine administration.
Parents should receive information a the time of the visit to allow for conversation with their HCP. OPPOSE
SB 9 Would decrease licensing fees for first time applicants and increase fees for renewals. OPPOSE
SB 622 Workloads for Nurses- Although this bill refers to hospital nurses, it is imperative that we include school nurse work loads.
