School Nurse Corps / Health

About

The OESD 114 School Nurse Corps (SNC) program assures School Nurse access to small / remote school districts in our region. Counties served are Kitsap, Jefferson, Clallam and North Mason.  We act as a link between OSPI, other State / local agencies and County Health Departments. SNC services include:

  • Assisting districts in finding school nurse staff as needed. If money available, provide funding to or supplement existing nursing services.
  • RN direct health care services including health plan creation, medication/treatment delegation training to unlicensed staff and other health interventions as needed. This includes ongoing oversight and evaluation of service delivery.
  • Health related technical support to school staff and administrators
  • Parent and student engagement regarding health conditions being managed at school

There is a dedicated SNC administrator at OESD 114 that provides technical support to all school districts and school nurses regardless of size. Training opportunities are shared or offered to school nurses through OESD 114.
