Licensure

School Nursing - A Specialty Practice of Nursing

As a professional organization, the Ohio Association of School Nurses recognizes that school nursing is a unique and special practice of nursing. OASN encourages all registered nurses working in schools to pursue school nurse licensure through the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). ODE 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".

The following facilities provide ODE approved school nurse licensure programs for the State of Ohio.
