Field Trips and Medication Administration

Published: 2/28/2014 11:38 AM

 

Kentucky law (KRS 156.502 and KRS 158.838) only addresses the required provision of “health services” to students in the “school setting.” 

Federal law covers the health services requirement for school field trips that require out of state travel. A Kentucky nurse’s provision or delegation to a school employee of health services to students on out-of-state, school-sponsored field trips will be governed by the other state boards of nursing. This will include all the states along the travel route as well as the final destination of the field trip. For additional information,  you may contact Karen Erwin, the KDE School Nurse Consultant at karen.erwin@education.ky.gov.
