Many of us are facing concerns with budget cuts threatening to dilute the nursing programs, thus the health and safety of students, in our schools. Many people are asking questions about legalities in regard to supervision and delegation. Below are links and excerpts that may help to answer some of these questions.
Members, please feel free to communicate to any of the GASN board (CLICK HERE) your concerns related to school health staffing in your area. We would like to offer any assistance that we can to prepare you with resources to help you in addressing the nursing needs in your school district. We all need to be knowledgeable in regards to our professional responsibilities.
