A co-worker of mine is taking Maternity class in an RN program. The instructor asked if anyone new if there was a State that does not require a newborn to have the Vitamin K injection. She could really use your help (everyone needs that little extra credit if you know what I mean)

IL, KS, MO, NC, SC, and PA require it. Parents must sign a release stating their rationale if they wish to refuse it. (Wow! I never knew it would be useful to have been transferred so many times!)

Tennessee definitely requires it..............I can't imagine not giving that injection to a newborn.
