In addition to issuing, renewing and reinstating licenses of RNs and LPNs, the Board approves and monitors the State’s nursing education programs which lead to initial licensure, investigates complaints against licensed nurses and maintains the Nurse Aide II registry.
    Founded in 1903, the North Carolina Board of Nursing was the first in the nation. (accessed on 22.04.2009)

    The North Carolina Board of Nursing is governed by the Administrative Code (Rules) and established by the Nurse Practice Act 2007 Chapter 90, Article 9A (Law). (accessed on 22.04.2009)

  • Health System
    Health care in the United States is mainly provided in the private sector (both for profit and for non-profit) and to a lesser degree by public funding for the poor, elderly, disabled, children and veterans.  The United States does not have a universal health care system.

    In the United States expenditure on health care in actual dollars and as a proportion of gross domestic product (GDP) and on a per-capita basis is greater, than in any other nation in the world. The World Health Organisation reports that in 2005 the US total expenditure on health as 15 % of GDP and that the total expenditure on health per capita was $US6350. (accessed on 22.04.2009).

    In 2006, around 84% of US citizens had some form of health insurance and about 16% of the population, or 47 million Americans were without health insurance coverage. (accessed on 22.04.2009).

    The number of acute care hospital beds in the United States in 2000 was 2.9 per 1 000 population. Bed numbers have declined and this coincides with a reduction in average length of stays in hospitals and an increase in day-surgery patients.
    The United States has among the lowest average lengths of stay for most procedures. (accessed on 22.04.2009).
