The North Carolina Board of Nursing provides links to documents in a number of formats. Some will require Microsoft Office software like Word, Excel or PowerPoint. Many documents are simply Adobe PDF files which can be opened using a common plug-in called Adobe Reader. If you do not have this plugin then download Adobe Reader for free.
When you click on a link that opens another website, pop-up blockers may block the new tab to the website. This depends on your browser settings.
You can allow once or disable all pop-up blockers. Many add-on toolbars, including Google and Yahoo, also have pop-up blockers that you may need to turn off.
