National Association of School Nurses (NJ3)
This manual is intended to provide the school nurse, school staff, school administration, and parents with a general understanding of the legal and nursing considerations and responsibilities that accompany delegation of nursing tasks in the school setting. With the increased need for health services in school, nurses are increasingly using the process of delegation. The Overview provides general information about the issue of delegating care in the school setting, specific information about the role of the school nurses and UAP (unlicensed assistive personnel), and criteria to guide decision making about what tasks can be delegated.
