Do you want to celebrate a nurse in your family, friend circle, and neighborhood? National Nurses Week is from May 6-12 and more than 143,000 Registered Nurses currently live in North Carolina. This credible career leads nurses to work in schools, hospitals, the prison system, and the military. Did you know that four of the nurses are serving in your North Carolina General Assembly as elected members of the House of Representatives?

There are many types of nursing careers, in fact, there are at least 25. Below see some nursing options:

Registered nurse (RN)
The licensed practical nurse (LPN)
Medical-surgical nurse
Intensive care unit (ICU) registered nurse
Nurse practitioner (NP)
Travel nurses
Emergency room nurses and Nursing assistants

As we all know, this past year has been unlike any other for the healthcare world. According to Kaiser Health News, more than 1,150 nurses have died fighting COVID, making up nearly 1 in every 3 healthcare worker deaths in the US since the start of the pandemic. If you are a nurse who has not yet joined the North Carolina Nurses Association, consider being a part of the largest professional organization for nurses that is led by nurses.
