WHO IS OASN?
The Ohio Association of School Nurses (OASN) is the professional association for registered nurses and other health professionals with a specific interest in school nursing and school health services. OASN’s purpose is as multifaceted and dynamic as issues of health and wellness in Ohio’s school children and their school communities. Members are from all over Ohio and work in large and small school districts, rural and urban districts and may provide services to a single school or multiple schools within a district. Members work in public, charter, and private/parochial schools. Some members are instructors, professors and/or coordinators of school nurse licensure programs at ODE approved colleges and universities throughout the State. Many of our members are supervisors or administrators of school nursing or school health services in their district.
The Ohio Association of School Nurses promotes optimal wellness among Ohio's school children and their communities by supporting their educational success & providing leadership, education & support for the practice of school nursing.
The Ohio Association of School Nurses is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
The unique opportunities, experiences and concerns of each member are important to the overall growth and knowledge of all of our members. The annual conference and membership dues are the two main sources of revenue that support the work of the Board as we partner with other organizations or advocate and lobby for legislative efforts concerning school health issues in Ohio. Therefore, we encourage membership and leadership involvement at every level so we can continue to be a strong presence, Caring for Ohio’s Children.
