National Association of School Nurses (NASN)
It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) that the delegation of nursing tasks in the school setting can be a valuable tool for the registered professional school nurse (hereinafter referred to as school nurse), when based on the nursing definition of delegation (American Nurses Association [ANA], 2012) and in compliance with state nursing laws and/or regulations and guidance. Delegation may occur when the school nurse determines it is appropriate, but such delegation may not be appropriate for all students or all school nurse practice settings. The legal parameters for nursing delegation are defined by state laws that regulate nursing, State Board of Nursing guidelines, and Nursing Administrative Rules/Regulations (ANA, 2012; American Academy of Pediatrics [AAP], 2009).
