education departments. The Executive Board con-

The State Board of Nursing originated as the
State Board of Examiners of Nurses in 1904 (Chap-
ter 172, Acts of 1904). It received its present name
in 1987 (Chapter 109, Acts of 1987).
To assure safe, competent nursing care for the
public, the Board regulates the practice of registered
nursing, licensed practical nursing, nurse practitio-
ners, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, and nurse
psychotherapists. The Board administers licensure
examinations; issues licenses to those who success-
fully have completed requirements and examina-
tions; evaluates, monitors and approves nursing
education programs to assure that minimal stand-
ards are maintained; enforces standards of practice,
interpreting the provisions of the Nurse Practice
Act, defining the scope of nursing practice, and
approving refresher programs; and assesses and
evaluates trends in nursing. Through its investiga-
tive unit, the Board also investigates any complaint
alleging violation of the Nurse Practice Act by a
nurse, conducts hearings, and takes disciplinary ac-
tion as required. Such action may include emer-
gency suspension, revocation of license, denial of
licensure, or probation.
The Board cooperates with the National Coun-
cil of State Boards of Nursing in the preparation of
the examination used for licensure. The Board also
works together with health care facilities, educa-
tional institutions, professional organizations, the
Maryland Higher Education Commission, the State
Board of Education, the Office on Aging, county
health departments, local school systems, and De-
partment agencies.
