The Ohio Association of School Nurses (OASN) advocates for the health of Ohio’s school aged children and their families.  With the recent advent of the increasing numbers of School Based Health Centers (SBHCs), it is important to understand the individual and collaborative roles of the Licensed School Nurse (LSN) and SBHCs.  The unique combination of school nursing services and SBHCs facilitates positive health outcomes for students.

Definition of School Nursing in Ohio

Asthma and SNAs a professional organization, the Ohio Association of School Nurses recognizes that school nursing is a unique and special practice of nursing.  The practice of school nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School Nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential. Adopted by the NASN Board of Directors February 2017.

In Ohio, the title School Nurse may only be used by OH RNs that have an ODE Professional Pupil Services School Nurse license.  OASN encourages all Registered Nurses working in OH schools to pursue school nurse licensure through the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).   ODE School Nurse Licensure has been proven critical to the professional growth and assimilation of the Registered Nurse into the educational environment. School Nurses are "key to student success".
