Eleven nurses from the Division of Public Health

Eleven nurses from the Division of Public Health are among recipients of the 100 Distinguished Public Health Nurses in North Carolina award as part of the Centennial Anniversary of the Office of Public Health Nursing.

The public health nurse leaders were selected by a committee of eight peers from state, local and academic partners. They embody the spirit of public health nursing - innovation, collaboration, community-centered care, and professionalism.
