Nevada has an act in place for using epinephrine in emergency situations.
An act relating to public health; allowing a physician to issue an order for auto-injectable epinephrine to a public or private school; providing for public and private schools to obtain
auto-injectable epinephrine under certain conditions; requiring public and private schools, if feasible, to provide certain training to employees and to develop a comprehensive plan concerning anaphylaxis; and providing other matters properly relating thereto. http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/77th2013/Bills/SB/SB453_EN.pdf
Congratulations! Your state has passed stock-epinephrine laws or regulations that permit an emergency supply of epinephrine auto-injectors to be used in a school. However, our job is not done yet. Each law or regulation must be implemented or put into action by a board or an agency.
The agency or board will then issue administrative rules, guidelines or best practices explaining in detail how it intends to put the law into effect and what a mother, father, caregiver, physician, pharmacist or school nurse must do to comply with the law. AANMA is an active resource in these states assisting administrators in a seamless rollout of the stock-epinephrine laws.
