Code for Nursing Services: HL or NR

Mary Jo Nordheim 1/29/10 Our AEA has always entered HL services when a child has a school nurse listed on the services page. Lately, we have been seeing the code NR on the services page. Do we need to be entering school nursing services as NR for IMS services? Thank you.
     
Toni Van Cleve 4/2/10 The code used is determined by the qualifications of the person delivering the service. "NR" indicates a registered nurse. "HL" indicates that the person delivering the services is a person qualified and competent in delivering the service by virtue of being trained and supervised by a registered nurse. This person might be the school secretary, the teacher, or a para-educator. This distinction is important because it has legal implications in both nursing and special education law.
