The Board of Education shall annually adopt the school district’s Nursing Services Plan at a regular meeting and submit it to the County Superintendent of Education for review and approval.
The Superintendent, or designee, shall develop the Nursing Services Plan in consultation with the school physician and certified school nurse.
The Nursing Services Plan shall include a description of the basic nursing services to be provided to all pupils and a summary of the specific medical needs of individual pupils, if any, and the nursing services required to address those needs. The Nursing Services Plan shall also include a description of how nursing services will be provided in emergency situations, detailed nursing assignments sufficient to provide the services to pupils in all of its school buildings as outlined in N.J.A.C. 6A:16-2.3(b) through (d), and nursing services and additional medical services provided to nonpublic schools pursuant to N.J.A.C. 6A:16-2.5.
The Board, in its determination of the number of certified school nurses and non-certified nurses needed to perform all of the required services as outlined in N.J.A.C. 6A:16 et seq. shall consider: the geographic size including the number and location of school buildings; the general and special education enrollment; the number of children with medical involvement and extent of nursing services required; the requirement that non-certified nurses be assigned to the same school building or school complex as the supervising certified school nurse to ensure that the certified school nurse can provide required supervision pursuant to N.J.A.C. 6A:16-2.3(b) and (d) and N.J.S.A. 18A:40-3.3; and nursing services and additional medical services provided to nonpublic schools pursuant to N.J.A.C. 6A:16-2.5.
