NM Bill Allows School Nurses to Administer Emergency Meds

ALBUQUERQUE (KOB) –  A new bill could save the lives of students all over New Mexico. School nurses will soon be able to administer emergency medication to a student without a prescription. Parents will be able to breathe a little easier next school year. That is because students who have allergic reactions or asthma attacks can be given the right medication regardless of a diagnosis or prescription.
