In an effort to streamline communication between the Department of Public Health (DPH) and Massachusetts-licensed temporary nursing agencies, the Bureau of Health Care Safety and Quality uses an electronic listserv as the primary method to transmit circular letters and other significant or time sensitive notifications.

Each agency must subscribe to the listserv and choose 2 individuals to receive communications:

  1. The agency administrator
  2. A backup clinical manager

Once you subscribe, your email will automatically be added to the distribution list. All communication from the temporary nursing agency listserv will be sent from donotreply@state.ma.us.

Circular letters will also continue to be posted online.
