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

Unless notified otherwise, 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. The meeting schedule is available at the State of Delaware public meeting calendar.

The Board or Committee may need to review and approve your application for licensure and will only review a complete application. A complete application includes your application and any documentation submitted through DELPROS and/or any documents submitted through the mail or email from third-parties. The Board will review your documentation at its next scheduled meeting.
