The Guide to School Nursing in Ohio-10th Edition


The 10th Edition of the Guide to School Nursing in Ohio 

 The Guide to School Nursing in Ohio is presented by the Ohio Association of School Nurses. This is a collaborative effort of many individuals with a vested interest in nursing services in our Ohio schools. It has evolved over the years and through many editions to reflect current Ohio school health laws and Scope and Standards of Practice of School Nursing as set forth by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), the Ohio Board of Nursing (OBN), The National Association of School Nurses (NASN) and the American Nurses Association (ANA). The intention of the guide is to be used for the benefit of school nurses and other individuals with an interest in school nursing practice.

The Guide to School Nursing in Ohio may be used to define best practices of Ohio’s licensed school nurses. Each section has been researched and written by qualified experts in the profession of school nursing and reviewed by each current Board member at the time of writing and at each subsequent editing. This GUIDE is to be used in conjunction with local health department practices and school district policies as a framework for the practice of school nursing in Ohio.

The Guide to School Nursing in Ohio is on a flash drive and has extra space to store other information.  The Guide is in PDF and the forms are in Microsoft Word so they can be edited to meet your needs.  If you would like to purchase a The Ohio Guide to School Nursing please send a check for $13.00 ($10.00 + 3.00 for shipping and handling) payable to OASN and a guide will be sent to you.  Please include a phone number where you can be reached on the check.
