There is a strong, well-established link between health and learning.

Healthy Kids Learn Better

Healthy Kids Learn Better Partnership (HKLB) works at the state and local level to foster partnerships between health and education stakeholders in order to reduce physical, social and emotional barriers to learning.

Oregon School-Based Health Centers

Oregon's School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) are a unique health care model in which comprehensive physical, mental and preventive health services are provided to youth and adolescents in a school setting.

Oregon School Nurses

School nurse roles and responsibilities

Nurses in Oregon schools reduce health-related barriers to education. They support students with special health care needs; train school staff on individual student care and school-wide health protocols; and work with school teams to promote wellness for school communities.

Task Force on School Nurses

Senate Bill 698 (2015) created the Task Force on School Nursing in response to continued concerns over the level of school nursing support provided to Oregon students. The Task Force is charged with providing recommendations for the future funding of health services in schools.
