Montana School Nursing Guide

The Montana School Nursing Guide has been developed to provide general information, resources and guidelines for meeting the basic healthcare needs of students in Montana schools. These guidelines are not intended to replace the school nurse’s professional judgment or training, or to substitute for school policy or the advice of a healthcare provider. If a situation appears serious or life-threatening, always follow school policies and procedures regarding notifications or calling for emergency assistance.

This guide was created in association with the Montana Association of School Nurses (MASN). The guide is intended to support the work of school nurses in Montana, but in no way is it a regulatory document.
