Children’s Private Duty Nursing Staffing Requirement Change

Tagged: 

The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) is revising its staffing requirements for the Children's Private Duty Nursing Program.

Effective Oct. 1, 2017, in lieu of having one year of pediatric nursing experience in a clinical setting, nursing providers may submit a pediatric nurse training program for registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) to SCDHHS for review and potential approval.

Nursing providers interested in presenting their pediatric training program to SCDHHS for review should contact the Children's Private Duty Nursing (CPDN) program coordinator. SCDHHS will inform the nursing provider in writing of the results of SCDHHS' review. If approved, nursing providers may not make changes to their pediatric training program without prior approval by SCDHHS.

If you have any questions regarding this bulletin, please contact Michelle White at (803) 898-0079.

Thank you for your continued support of the South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid program.
