Welcome to the Maryland Board of Nursing

During this unprecedented pandemic, as Maryland prepares for a surge in COVID-19 cases, our health care workers on the front lines need reinforcements and additional healthcare practitioners are needed for alternate sites and in many other capacities.

The State of Maryland is seeking volunteers for its Maryland Responds Medical Reserve Corps (MD Responds) as well as candidates for contract positions.

Please volunteer or apply today for this force of dedicated medical professionals. More information is available at mdresponds.health.maryland.gov
