Advanced Practice Registered Nursing: Nurse Practitioners
The requirement for NP attestation as a condition of practice in Maryland has been repealed and Attestations will nolonger be required after October 1, 2015.
There is a new bill which requires each new applicant who has never been certified as a CRNP in this or any otherstate to name a mentor on their application for certification who is either a certified Maryland CRNP or LicensedMaryland Physician. There is no administrative burden attached to the mentor; the Board of Nursing will not haveto approve , monitor or keep a list of mentors. The NP's application will serve as proof that they have named amentor. The mentor is required for 18 months starting with the day the NP submits their application to the Boardof Nursing. This requirement will only apply to CRNPs who have never been certified in this or any other State.
