Board and Committee Meetings
To protect against the spread of COVID-19, the North Carolina Board of Nursing office is closed to the public.
The North Carolina Board of Nursing holds its Board and Committee meetings at the Board of Nursing office located at:
North Carolina Board of Nursing
4516 Lake Boone Trail
Raleigh, NC 27607
Board meetings are held each year in January, May and September. Board meetings are open to the public and individuals are encouraged to attend either the full meeting or the Open Comment Period.
Open Comment Period
The purpose of the Open Comment Period is to provide members of the nursing community an opportunity to bring issues of concern to the Board. Individuals are encouraged to share their concerns, offer views and present questions regarding issues that impact nursing and nursing regulation. This is an opportunity for open exchange of ideas; there is no pre-established agenda, but we do ask that anyone wishing to speak at the Open Comment Period notify the Board of Nursing. Educators/students from schools of nursing, representatives from associations/councils, nursing executives from various settings, as well as members of the public are invited to attend. Written comments must be submitted on the day of the Open Comment Period. Individuals will have five (5) minutes to address the Board.
Board meeting agendas are posted to the website approximately two (2) weeks prior to the scheduled meeting.
Most of the Board’s work is accomplished through the Committee process. Occasionally, the Board may convene a special task force to accomplish specific objectives within a specified time frame. Members of the health care field and/or interested parties may be appointed to serve on both Advisory Committees and Task Forces.
