General Provisions for School Nurse Certificate
School districts which employ nurses and compensate them for services from public funds are encouraged to employ persons certified as school nurses by the Commission.
School districts may employ nurses who are not certified as school nurses by the Commission. No forfeiture of state school funds will be made for such employment. The district, however, shall not designate such personnel as “school nurses.”
A school nurse certificate is not a teaching license. A person holding a school nurse certificate is not subject to the Fair Dismissal Law. See also ORS 342.475 (School nurses)(5).
