Board of Nursing



Objective and Function

The primary objective of the Delaware Board of Nursing is to protect the public health, safety and welfare. To meet this objective to safeguard life and health, the Board

  • develops standards for professional competency
  • promulgates rules and regulations
  • adjudicates complaints against professionals and, when necessary, imposes disciplinary sanctions

The Board issues licenses to registered nurses (RNs), practical nurses (LPNs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs).

The Board’s statutory authority is in 24 Del. C., Chapter 19. Delaware is a member of the interstate nurse licensure compact covered in 24 Del. C., Chapter 19A.

 

Meetings

The Board meets the second Wednesday of the month at 9:00 a.m., with the exception of August and December. All meetings are open to the general public and are held in the Cannon Building, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, in Dover.

To ensure that business (such as a license application) is on the agenda for the Board to consider at its next meeting, submit all documentation to the Board office no later than 4:30 PM ten full working days before the meeting date.
