The National Association of School Nurses commissioned a uniform clinical practice guideline (CPG) for the administration of medications in schools based on a systematic review of the literature. The School Nursing Evidence-based [BMD1] Clinical Practice Guideline: Medication Administration in Schools provides direction for state school nurse consultants, school districts, and nurses working independently in schools by creating the structure and processes of care to lead to optimal outcomes including increased medication adherence, fewer errors and decreased morbidity and mortality. The School Nursing Evidence-based [BMD1] Clinical Practice Guideline: Medication Administration in Schools guide school policy and provide evidence for policy changes for state legislation.
