Minnesota Guidelines for Medication Administration in Schools
The Minnesota Guidelines for Medication Administration in Schools were created to increase the safe administration of medications to students in schools. Many children who have chronic and/or acute health conditions can attend school because of the effectiveness of their prescribed medications(s).
The Minnesota Guidelines for Medication Administration in Schools were developed collaboratively by the Minnesota Departments of Education, Health, and Human Services, the Minnesota Board of Nursing, and a statewide multidisciplinary work group.
The guidelines are intended for school districts, school boards, principals, health educators, school nurses and those they delegate to administer medications, parents, and students themselves.
