School Health Regulations
  • Delaware statutes and regulations govern and shape the practice of school nursing.  Regulations promulgated by the Delaware Department of Education address the "health and physical welfare of public school students in the State".  The regulations address requirements for immunizations, tuberculosis screening and health examinations.  They additionally articulate schools' responsibilities for periodic health screenings, medication administration and school health records. For details regarding Delaware health regulations, review the Delaware Department of Education Health & Safety Regulations.
