Volunteer Info

One of the best ways to help lead Nursing Forward® is to volunteer with NCNA. Taking on a leadership position within your region or on one of our councils will allow you to better shape the conversation and make decisions that directly impact what is most important to you. Our Regional Advisory Committees and Council Executive Committees are always looking for new members who can bring a new perspective to reviewing awards nominations, planning conferences, or advocating for your profession at the North Carolina General Assembly!

See our wide range of volunteering opportunities below and let us know what looks like the best fit! If you have any questions, email NCNA at
