The State Board of Morticians originally was
established as the State Board of Undertakers by
Chapter 160, Acts of 1902. In 1937 the Board
was renamed the State Board of Funeral Direc-
tors and Embalmers. The Board received its pres-
ent name in 1981 (Chapter 8, Acts of 1981). The
Governor, upon the recommendation of the Sec-
retary of Health and Mental Hygiene and by and
with the consent of the Senate, appoints the elev-
en members of the Board for four-year terms.
Nine members are licensed morticians or funeral
directors and two members are consumers who
have no training or substantial financial interest
in the profession. Five members must be residents
of Baltimore City and six must be residents of the
counties. All professional members must have
been actively engaged in their profession for the
last five years immediately preceding their ap-

Every person carrying on the business of funer-
al directing and embalming in the State must reg-
ister with and procure a license from the Board.
The Board renews licenses annually, and it has
the power to suspend or revoke any license. The
Board makes regulations for the enforcement of
provisions in the laws regarding funeral directing
and embalming (Code Health Occupations Arti-
cle, Title 6).

Subject to the evaluation and rccstablishmcnt
provisions of the Regulatory Programs Evalua-
tion Act (sunset law) of 1978, authorization for
the Board continues until July 1, 1988 (Chapter
170, Acts of 1981).

The State Board of Examiners of Nurses was
created in 1904 (Chapter 172, Acts of 1904, as
amended by Chapter 122, Acts of 1973). Upon
recommendation of the Secretary of Health and
Mental Hygiene, the Governor appoints members
for three-year terms. Three members must be li-
censed practical nurses and six must be registered
nurses. As vacancies occur the Maryland Nurses
Association and the Maryland Licensed Practical
Nurses Association, as the case may be, submit
to the Governor and to the Secretary of Health
and Mental Hygiene the names of five of its
members from which the Governor selects ap-
pointees. Two members are consumers appointed
by the Governor on the recommendation of the
Secretary of the Department of Health and Men-
tal Hygiene with the advice and consent of the

The Board examines all applicants for registra-
tion as registered nurses and as licensed practical
nurses and issues the proper certificates. It keeps
a register of the names of all registered nurses
and all licensed practical nurses, which is open at
all reasonable times to public scrutiny. The Board
renews registered nurse and licensed practical
nurse licenses biennially. The Board prescribes
standards for nursing education programs and
surveys such programs as are necessary in order
to meet the requirements of the Board (Code
Health Occupations Article, Title 7).

The Board cooperates with the National
League for Nursing in the preparation of its State
Board Test Pool Licensing Examinations and uses
these examinations.

Subject to the evaluation and reeslablishmeni
provisions of the Regulatory Programs Evalua-
tion Act (sunset law) of 1978, authorization for
the Board continues until July 1, 1989 (Chapter
626, Acts of 1982).
