I am attempting to set up a server that has a static IP address and I want to register a domain name to point to it. Having always used shared hosting in the past, I am unsure what to tell my domain to point at.

Do I just put the IP for the A record and delete the name server records?


NameServer is needed for every domain. Just put the static IP as an A record in your registrar's control panel.

(If your registrar was different from your shared hosting provider in the past, you would have done the same even for shared hosting).
