Over the Counter Medication Information
The South Carolina Boards of Medical Examiners, Nursing and Pharmacy approved and adopted the recommendation that school nurses may administer over the counter medications with parental consent and without physician consent. Therefore, if your child requires over the counter medication at school, please contact your school nurse to request a copy of the appropriate form. The form can also be found on the schools’ webpages. This form must be completed before the school nurse will be able to administer any over the counter medication. Please be reminded that all over the counter medication must be in its original container and be labeled with the child’s name.
