a. The curriculum in each educational program of professional nursing in this State shall include instruction in organ and tissue donation and recovery designed to address clinical aspects of the donation and recovery process.

c. A nursing program which includes instruction in organ and tissue donation and recovery as provided in subsection a. of this section in its curricula shall offer such training for continuing education credit.
d. (1) A licensed professional nurse licensed to practice nursing in this State prior to the effective date of this act, who was not required to receive and did not receive instruction in organ and tissue donation and recovery as part of his nursing program curriculum, shall be required, as a condition of relicensure, to document completion of such training to the satisfaction of the board no later than three years after the effective date of this act. The training may be completed through an on-line, one credit hour course developed by or for the organ procurement organizations and approved by the board.
