NSP II Site Visits

Site visits for active NSP II grants are currently being scheduled. The majority of routine NSP II site visits are conducted during the summer months.

Senate Bill 108

Senate Bill 108 was introduced during the 2016 Maryland legislative session to remove the term "bedside" as a descriptor in the statutory provision that establishes the NSP II. Instead of focusing on "bedside" nurses, SB 108 allows the NSP II to expand the projects eligible for NSP II funding to keep pace with the rapidly changing provision of health care services. SB 108 was voted favorable by the Maryland Senate and the House and was approved by the Governor on April 26, 2016.
