Welcome to the Oregon School Nurse Association

We advocate for all children through school nursing services. The Oregon School Nurse Association is the only state association organized by and for Oregon school nurses. We support school nurses and all they do to maintain a healthy environment for our children. This website is here so you can learn more about school nursing and our association and to provide an online community and resource to OSNA members.

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning."
Adopted by the National Association of School Nurses, June 1999
