The School Nurse Induction Program is offered to school nurses who have practiced in Pennsylvania for 0-6 years. Completing a state approved induction program is one of three requirements necessary to convert an Educational Specialist Level I certificate to an Educational Specialist II certificate in the state of Pennsylvania. Two additional requirements include 3 years of school nursing experience in Pennsylvania and 24 post-baccalaureate credits. Once Induction is complete, school nurses will receive 1 credit from the Pennsylvania Department of Education PDE, which is equivalent to 30 Act 48 hours.
