The Pennsylvania School Code provides that all children attending schools receive school health services provided by a certified school nurse. Your certified school nurse is a unique specialist whose primary role is to strengthen the educational process through improvement of the health status of children and young people.
Your nurse is a registered professional nurse with at least a baccalaureate degree and certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Penn-Delco nurses have an extensive background in health care, health education, school health and the use of community resources. Some of the services provided include health screenings, medical and dental examinations, emergency care, medication administration, maintenance of student health records, and monitoring of immunization compliance.
