NCONL | North Carolina Organization for Nurse Leaders

NCONL is the state level affiliate of the American Organization of Nurse Leaders and serves as a voice for North Carolina nurse leaders to shape healthcare through innovative and expert nurse leadership.  NCONL works to strengthen nursing leadership through professional development, to facilitate nursing research in order to advance nursing practice, and to influence health care policy regarding the value and impact of the nursing profession.  NCONL, through the collaboration and networking of nurse leaders across the state, serves as a catalyst for the positive transformation of patient care.

NCONL understands the value and strength of promoting unity and cohesiveness across the nursing profession and works to nurture key relationships with the North Carolina Board of Nursing, the North Carolina Healthcare Association, and the North Carolina Nurses Association.  NCONL serves as the lead nursing organization for the North Carolina Future of Nursing Action Coalition.

NCONL is also proud to acknowledge that all nurses have the potential to lead and can serve to positively influence the delivery of patient care and improved patient outcomes. Nurses in both formal leadership positions and nurses aspiring to leadership roles are invited and encouraged to join.  We seek to be one voice advancing health in North Carolina.
