Medication Administration

Administration of medication is governed by state law. The law requires that schools provide a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) approved knowledge and skills training to any employee (secretary, teacher, specialized education assistant, principal, nurse assistant, etc.) who administers medications as a function of their job duties via certain routes. These routes include inhaled, injected, buccal, intranasal, rectal, nasogastric tube, gastrostomy tube, and jejunostomy tube. Medications administered orally, topically, and eye and ear medications are not required unless staff administer them on a routine basis. Knowledge training is required every 4 years and is provided through the DPI website. Skills competency testing is provided by the school nurse and is required at least every year and more often if needed. The DPI Medical Training website can be reached via the District onboarding website at:
