    New School Nurse: Steps for Year Three

    The third year of the Comprehensive Induction Program for School Nurses focuses on further developing the knowledge and skills of the school nurse in the areas of leadership, outreach, and advocacy. Materials are available on Schoology

    Procedural Steps for Year 3

    • Revisit self-assessment completed in Year 2 with mentor.
    • Read School Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice & Code of Ethics for Nurses
    • Participation in Professional Learning Community/Book Review-Scope and Standards/Ethics
    • Review and update Professional Growth Plan

    Year 3 Documentation to be Placed in the "CIP For School Nurses" Portfolio

    Please place the following items in your portfolio:

    CIP End of Year Verification Form for School Nurses


    If you move to another district/charter school during the period of time when you hold an Initial License, you are required to present the specified documents related to each of the CIP Years. Failure to provide the documentation may result in your not securing a position or being required to repeat some or all of the missing paperwork.

    After each of the first four years of school nursing, the new nurse's portfolio should contain copies of his/her summative DPAS II evaluations. School Nurses moving from the Initial License to a Continuing License with more than one (1) unsatisfactory DPAS annual summative evaluation during the period of initial licensure are ineligible to be issued a Continuing License. Failure to meet this requirement may result in a required extension of the Initial License or the inability to secure a Continuing License.

    Please verify with your School Nurse Lead Mentor to assure that you are moving through the correct path of evaluation. You are to receive a summative evaluation at the end of each of your three years on the Initial License. A lesson analysis or informal observation is not a summative evaluation. In the event that administration does not provide you with a summative evaluation at the end of the year you should notify your School Nurse Lead Mentor and the Site Coordinator. Clarify your expected completion date with district HR and certification office.
