What is your vision for NSP II?


"I am so lucky to have the opportunity to work with Nurse Support Program II because it is my job to celebrate and brag about the amazing achievements of so many wonderful nurse educators in Maryland.

This work is so rewarding because it directly impacts the nursing workforce shortage in my home state.

My vision for NSP II is for it to stay at the forefront of current statewide needs for nursing education and remain a leading source of support that is informed by those on the frontlines who are teaching at the Maryland schools of nursing.

NSP II has been providing funding to address the nursing workforce shortage in Maryland since 2005, and I hope that it will continue to provide support for many years to come!"
