Unionville-Chadds Ford School District is fortunate to have registered nurses in every building. This affords nurses the opportunity to better know and to maintain continuity of care for their students. You are encouraged to contact your child's school nurse about any problem or concern you may have.

School districts in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are required to provide one Certified School Nurse (CSN) for every 1500 district students. Certified School Nurses are registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees and a School Health Certification. In addition to nursing, they have experience in health education, counseling and the use of community resources.

School nurses work closely with other faculty members and school administrators to identify and follow-up on a variety of health issues. In addition to performing Pennsylvania mandated responsibilities, nurses are involved in:
  • Student Assistance Teams 
  • Instructional Support Teams
  • Accommodation Plans
  • Individualized Educational Placements
  • Staff wellness
  • Building safety and environment
  • Classroom instruction
  • Staff development
