Proctor Will Contribute to Nursing Certificate Test Design
College of Southern Maryland (CSM) Continuing Education Healthcare Director Lori Proctor has over 30 years in nursing experience and has worked at CSM for two years. “This is a huge honor for me,” she said. “Not only will I be representing for the state of Maryland, I will be representing CSM. I will be able to bring the information gathered from the conference and improve the Certified Nursing Assistant program we have here at the college.”
CSM Director of Workforce Development Kelly Winters agreed that Proctor’s participation on the panel will benefit CSM. “This national workshop is to set new standards for certification testing for certified nursing assistants at a nationwide level,” Winters said. “The immediate benefit is CSM will be aware of impending changes well in advance. In many regulated courses, changes are put into place with as little as 90 days’ notice. These changes have the potential to impact curriculum, equipment and materials, faculty knowledge, textbooks, hours of the class. Seeing these changes early will allow Lori and the college to strategically plan implementation.”
