The state of Maryland passed legislation in 2000 in response to the nursing shortage—creating a state commission to address the issue. The commission was charged with exploring potential solutions to the nursing workforce shortage, which is being felt most acutely in hospitals and long-term care facilities. The commission's work began in 2000 and will continue through 2005.
