Council of Nurse Practitioners

NCNA NP Council: Who We Are, How We Function, How To Join

The NP Council is a structural unit of the North Carolina Nurses Association (NCNA). NCNA membership is a prerequisite to Council membership and participation in Council activities at all levels. The Council is divided into geographic regions across the state. Each region is a sub-structural unit of the Council and of NCNA. This regional structure is designed to enhance communication, networking, continuing education and leadership development opportunities at the grassroots level.

NP Council Online Discussion Group
NCNA is excited to announce that we are now able to offer online discussion groups (also known as “list-servs”) as a benefit for our members. These NCNA discussion groups are an opportunity to increase communication and provide relevant information to members of the association. Please read our user policy. The list-serv and discussion group software is designed to connect you with your NCNA affiliated NP Council group and will provide an opportunity to receive timely information from your leadership. We hope that you will be able to enjoy this member benefit and get a lot of useful information off of it.
