Epipen Information

In the spring of 2006, the legislature revised the statute N.J.S.A., 18A: 40-12.3 through 12.6 which governs the emergency administration of epinephrine.   The statute allows for the school nurse to recruit and train volunteers who are willing to act as a delegate responsible for the administration of epinephrine via pre filled auto injector in the event the registered nurse is not present. Starting September, 2015, there is an addition to the previous legislation which expands the current guidelines, permitting administration of epinephrine to ANY student having an anaphylactic reaction by the registered nurse or trained delegate.  The law requires parent notification of this policy. 

  • It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide a current pre-filled, single dose auto injector mechanism containing epinephrine; prescribed and labeled for your child
  • The parent/guardian is responsible for replacing the prefilled, single dose auto injector mechanism containing epinephrine when it has expired and /or has been used
  • Orders must be renewed yearly and provided to the school on or prior to the first day of classes
