Serving Without Proper Certification
School nurses are not teachers and may not be assigned to positions requiring teaching, personnel service, or administrative licensure without proper licensure for such positions. School nurses who serve in positions requiring teaching, personnel service, or administrative licensure without proper licensure may have such action considered as evidence of gross neglect of duty under ORS 342.175 (Grounds for discipline). Gross neglect of duty may be grounds for revocation of a school nurse certificate.
TSPC may revoke any certificate upon evidence that the holder or applicant knowingly made false statements to a prospective employing school district concerning the individual’s certification status or qualifications for assignment.
