The challenge of creating and filling nursing jobs in North Carolina continues to be one of the biggest facing the state. Interest in nursing remains high, but a lack of nursing educators has created a shortage of qualified nurses. However, recent statewide efforts and a task force implemented by the North Carolina Institute of Medicine have made significant progress in addressing the nursing workforce shortage. More work is needed, though, and funding is a high priority in North Carolina to continue improving education programs and the entire nursing workplace environment.

Parish nurses, also known as church nurses, combine their nursing skills and religious faith to care for fellow members of their religious community. One resource for parish nurses is the International Parish Nurse Resource Center run by Deaconess Parish Nurse Ministries, LLC. The American Nurses Association (ANA) calls parish nursing, faith community nursing. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. The median annual salary of registered nurses is $62,450; annual salaries are greatly influenced by specialty, experience, region and industry.
