Delaware School Nurse Certification

  • Delaware Law requires every public school to have a full-time school nurse.  For school nurses working in public district schools, there are minimum hiring criteria, e.g., Registered Nurse license to practice in Delaware and three years of supervised, clinical experience.  Additionally, the school nurse must obtain the Delaware Department of Education's educator license with a certification in school nursing.
