Medication Administration in Schools

Information and authorization forms for nursing services.

If possible, all medications should be given at home. If medications must be given during school hours or during athletic team practices/events, they shall be administered in compliance with the New Mexico Administrative Code, New Mexico Nursing Practice Act, New Mexico School Health Manual Standards, New Mexico Athletic Trainers Practice Act, and APS Procedural Directive. All medication administration at school requires the parent to provide the appropriate medication authorization form to be completed and signed by the student's parent and/or medical provider.

All APS medication authorization forms are posted on this web page and can be downloaded by parents and or providers for completion. APS school staff will no longer be able to facilitate completion of these forms by the student's provider. Providers may require the parent to sign a Release of Information due to HIPAA regulations before completing the Medical Authorization Form for administration of medication at school. Please contact your provider to determine their requirements for completing this school form. Contact your school nurse for additional explanation of these requirements.
