"B. The Online Virginia Network Authority shall establish an accelerated 12-week module for the didactic portion of intensive care unit nursing certification and clinical training in both synchronous and asynchronous formats. The Authority shall partner with representatives from the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association, the Virginia Nurses Association, and the Virginia Community College System for the design of the module, the standards for completion, and eligibility criteria. Licensed nurses with a Registered Nurse or Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, having a requisite number of years of work experience as determined by the Authority, may be eligible for the program. Nursing student fees for the didactic and clinical portions of training required for completion of the certification will be forgiven in exchange for a three-year commitment to be employed as an ICU nurse by a sponsoring acute care facility."


(This amendment directs the Online Virginia Network Authority to establish a 12-week training module for didactic ICU training as a part of its nursing certification and clinical training.)
