Insulin & Glucagon Administration Training Programs

Pursuant to the Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as it existed on July 1, 2011, the 2011 Arkansas General Assembly passed a law pertaining to the administration of glucagon by trained volunteer school personnel to Arkansas public school students who are diagnosed with diabetes. Further, the 2015 Arkansas General Assembly passed a law pertaining to the administration of insulin by trained volunteer school personnel to Arkansas public school students who are diagnosed with diabetes.  These laws allow trained volunteer school personnel in the absence of the school nurse to administer glucagon, insulin or both to a child diagnosed with diabetes in an emergency situation.  Consequently, the Arkansas Department of Education and the Arkansas State Board of Nursing,  in collaboration with the Arkansas School Nurses Association and diabetic experts, worked together to identify and approve Insulin and Glucagon Administration Training  programs that meet the requirements of the Arkansas State Board of Nursing Rules, Chapter 9.
