A new law has passed that allows non nurse school district employees to administer epinephrine via an auto injector (also known as an EPI Pen) during an anaphylactic emergency. Until now, this has only been an an option for nurses, instead of other employees. And according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 3 million children under age 18 is affected by food allergies of some type - so this new measure of safety is something worth getting excited about!
The only hold up? Before nurses are able to exercise their best judgement in an emergency, they MUST undergo CPR training.
Which is where Learn CPR 4 Life comes in. If you are a school nurse in need of this new training, we'd love to help you get certified!
