It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) that each student with a Do Not Attempt Resuscitation (DNAR) order have an Individualized Healthcare Plan (IHP) and an Emergency Care Plan (ECP) developed by the registered professional school nurse (hereinafter referred to as school nurse) with input from parents or guardians, the student's healthcare provider, the palliative care team, administrators, teachers, local emergency medical services, local funeral director and, when appropriate, the student in order to support the student's access to education and palliative health care. Furthermore, a DNAR order for a student should be evaluated individually at the district level with input from the school district's legal counsel for consideration of state and local laws.
