It has been nearly 20-years since the North Carolina Board of Nursing (NCBON) underwent rebranding. At that time, the use of our logo was limited to building signage and printed documents. With the ever-expanding reach of the internet and social media, NCBON leadership determined in early 2022 that it was time to renew our brand to be more reflective of our purpose instead of just our location.
Our iconography, depicted by four overlapping leaves of four distinct colors, is representative of the four regions of North Carolina -- Mountain, Piedmont, Inner-Coastal Plain, and Outer-Coastal Plain. Rooted in our mission to protect the public by regulating the practice of nursing, our vision branches upward -- reaching towards exemplary nursing care for all.
We have internally referred to ourselves as NCBON as reflected in our website address and emails, but now we formally recognize it as a primary identifier.
Nurses, organizations, and members of the general public should expect to begin seeing this logo and its respective color scheme used in our communications as we work through this transition.
We are invigorated as we turn the page on this exciting chapter of NCBON's history and look forward to continuing our duty protecting the public by regulating the practice of nursing.
