In accordance with HRS § 302A-1164:

Once specific medication requests are presented to the school, the consulting nurse will review the form to interpret the medical orders and advise the school administration to assign medication administration to a SHA or a Hawaii-licensed RN through the Department’s Skilled Nursing Services contract. A consulting nurse may also indicate that the medication as requested is not appropriate for the school setting.
