School Health Services is an essential component of the overall school program that supports the individual health and well-being of each student through quality nursing services provided by professional school nurses.  In Delaware, a full-time school nurse is available to all students in every public school.  The Delaware school nurse is a highly qualified professional, who minimally holds a bachelor's degree in nursing, is a Registered Nurse (R.N.), has three years clinical experience and obtains Delaware certification in school nursing.  School nurses work closely with students, their families, staff and community partners to help students fully participate in school and its varied activities.

The Delaware school nurse is a valued member of the school team and contributes to the total education program.  Regulations and school nursing guidelines are followed to address the health and safety of students receiving a public education.  The nurse provides:

  • quality, direct nursing services for chronic and episodic conditions
  • health screenings and referrals
  • health promotion for students and staff
  • care coordination for students with chronic health conditions
  • health services management
  • a link to healthcare providers in the community
  • an on-site health resource for students, families and staff
