H237/S295, Nurses Special Registration Plate, was introduced on March 6, 2003. This bill authorizes the Division of Motor Vehicles to issue special First in Nursing registration plates to support nursing scholarships in North Carolina. Both versions of the bill passed their respective houses in late March and the bill was ratified on April 2, 2003. Primary bill sponsors were Representative Nelson Cole, D-Reidsville; Senator Scott Thomas, D-New Bern; and Senator Bill Purcell, D-Laurinburg.
