Good Morning fellow school nurses!

I am curious if any of you have been asked to assess students for being under the influence of marijuana or alcohol? If so, do you have specific training or credentials? Is this your school policy?

I work at a private school with some boarding students (not all) and was asked to drug test a boarding student. The test the school wanted me to use was expired, so I refused for that reason and because the consents for the boarding kids' treatment is handled by another department - my consents for them only cover OTC and their RX meds. So I referred the dorm staff to take him to an outpatient place and advise the parents. I was frankly pretty shocked they asked me to do that (especially while handing me an EXPIRED test - haha!)
