School Nurses of California Foundation
Announcing their Fall 2023 Grant Opportunity!

The School Nurses of California Foundation (SNOCF) is offering a grant opportunity for 2023-2024. The grant may be project- or research-based and must focus on strategies that support the efforts of school nurses. The selected grantee(s) may choose to create a project or plan research that aligns with our current focus (see below). This grant funding is open to any school nurse currently employed by a California school/district. Depending upon the quality and number of proposals, and their submitted budgets, SNOCF may select to award a single grant of $2000, or up to four $500 grants.  The grantee(s) are expected to submit a midterm update and a final grant report (*see addendum for example) and to support school nursing by sharing their project/research outcomes through the SNOCF website or other statewide outlets approved by SNOCF.

AB 1810 The Seizure Safe Schools Act

Under Assembly Bill 1810 and California Education Code § 49468 et esq., The Seizure Safe Schools Act, school districts are required to seek volunteers, in the absence of a school nurse, to administer emergency anti-seizure medication to identified pupils experiencing seizure conditions. The California Education Code has multiple requirements surrounding staff notification, parent notification, parental shared seizure action plan and specific training requirements.

 Policy Statement

AAP Policy Statement on Off-Label Medication Use

The American Academy of Pediatrics has a position statement on the use of off-label medication use with children. The purpose of off-label use is to benefit the individual patient. Practitioners use their professional judgment to determine these uses. As such, the term “off-label” does not imply an improper, illegal, contraindicated, or investigational use. Therapeutic decision-making must always rely on the best available evidence and the importance of the benefit for the individual patient.
