    Chriss Zimmerman, Delaware School Nurse of the Year 2016

  • 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.
