School Nurse Resources

  • Oregon School Nurse Manual
  • Steps of Delegation

    This document is meant to help a registered nurse make sure they are following the steps of delegation. It could also be used to help non-nurse supervisors understand that delegation is not a one and done process.

  • Delegation of Nursing Procedures in the School Setting

    This document pulls out of Division 45 & 47 the requirements and rules around Nursing delegation in Oregon.

  • Documentation Guidance

    This guide describes requirements related to documentation that exist within Nurse Licensure requirements and the various rules that impact how documentation is done in the school setting.

    This section provides information necessary to complete ODE’s annual Medically Fragile/School Nurse Data Collection​ and Dental Screening Data Collection.

    The annual Medically Fragile and School Nurse data collection will be opening on May 7, 2020. This collection asks for information on student health and school nurse staffing. Please review the Medically Fragile Definitions and Guidance document and slides, as well as the applicable Oregon statutes and rules before preparing and inputting your data. Please submit your School District’s data by July 31, 2020. When you are ready to input data, please visit the District Site.

    The annual Dental Screening data collection will also be opening on May 7, 2020. This collection asks for information on student dental screening certificates. Please review the Data Collection Guidance Slides as well as the Dental Collection FAQ document before preparing your data. Please submit your School District’s data by July 31, 2020. When you are ready to input data, please visit the District Site​. If you don’t have access to the Dental Screening collection, please contact your District Security Administrator.

    General Reminders:

    These Data Collections are to be submitted at the school district level only. ESDs and Charter Schools: please work with School Districts to ensure that submission happens only once, from the school district. Submissions should include all information from public schools within the school district, including charter schools.

    Changes due to COVID:

    We know that the coronavirus crisis has upended much of our daily work and yearly routines. With an understanding that data collections may be especially challenging given circumstances associated with school closures and physical distancing (and everything else!), we’re extending the open windows for both the Medically Fragile/School Nurse and Dental Screening collections for an extra month, from May 7, 2020- July 31, 2020.

    Other 2020 Changes:

    • Medically Fragile/School Nurse: This year, how the list of student health acuity is ordered on the submission page has changed. The submission fields are the same, just the ordering has changed to reflect increasing acuity. The PowerPoint slides provide a screenshot of how this looks.
    • Dental Screening: This year, this data collection will be completed on the ODE District Webpage, along with most other collections. This will no longer be submitted via Smart Sheets. Also, please note that the submission fields are asking for the same data as prior years— but we’ve clarified some of the language. The PowerPoint slides ​provide a screenshot of how this looks.
