Federal, state, and institutional regulations regarding a nursing student with a service animal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Several universities are reporting increasing numbers of students using a service animal. Understanding the three types of assistance animals—service animal, therapy animal, and emotional support animal—will assist nursing educators in determining which animals are trained to provide a specific service to the student. Students with conditions as varied as diabetes, anxiety disorder, and seizures may benefit from a service animal. Reviewing the types of support these animals provide and federal, state, and local regulations related to service animal use will guide faculty members in preparing for a high quality learning experience for students who use a service animal.
