Officer John Hartman #48, Community Education Division- Delaware City Police Dept., School Resource Officer - OSROA Board of Directors-VP has written the attached letter in support of OH School Nurse Licensure and the education required to attain this license.  He states "It is paramount that, like an SRO, the School Nurse role be defined. Job specific education, basic and continuing, be identified, offered, and implemented as a pre-requisite for the role change. This approach will prepare the nurse for success in his/her performance, the school in its overall wellness and, likewise, reduce liability and unnecessary issues that may arise from negligence."  Please see the letter here
