Medication Administration Video Debut!
CSNO is pleased to announce the debut of the Medication Administration Training product at the end of this month! Over 20 CSNO members worked this past year to write the script and the develop the materials for this project. This four module training program may be used by school nurses to train unlicensed assistive personnel/trained health care aides on how to administer medication in the educational setting. Please note this product does not address Diabetic Management or Insulin Administration. CSNO recommends using the American Diabetes Association Safe at School program. It is anticipated the CSNO product will be available for delivery September 1, 2016. Presales are available at this time.

Preliminary Injunction for SB 277--DENIED!
State Legislatures have a long history of requiring children to be vaccinated as a condition to school enrollment, and for as many years, both state and federal courts have upheld those requirements against constitutional challenge. History , in itself, does not compel the result in this case, but the case law makes clear that States may
impose mandatory vaccination requirements without providing for religious or conscientious objections. Although the removal of the PBE here affects a great many people, this Court, is not prepared to hold that a minority, residing or remaining in any city or town where [disease] is prevalent, may thus defy the will of its constituted authorities, acting in good faith for all, under the legislative sanction of the State. If such be the privilege of a minority then a like privilege would belong to each individual of the community, and the spectacle would be presented of the welfare and safety of an entire population being subordinated to the notions of a single individual who chooses to remain a part of that population. Jacobson, 197 U.S. at 37-38. Over 100 years ago, the Supreme Court was, unwilling to hold it to be an element in the liberty secured by the Constitution of the United States that one person, or a minority of persons, residing in any community and enjoying the benefits of its local government, should have the power thus to dominate the majority when supported in their action by the authority of the State. Id. at 38. In this case, Plaintiffs have not made a showing that they are entitled to the extraordinary remedy of a preliminary injunction. Accordingly, their motion is respectfully denied.
WE DID IT!!!!! SB 1194 is dead for the year!!!!!!
CSNO sent notification for members to call their legislators and oppose SB 1194; a bill that would have significantly impacted the BRN. Lydia Bourne, CSNO Lobbyist, in collaboration with other nurse groups, attended the hearing and voiced opposition to the bill that would remove autonomy of the BRN. The bill was pulled.
