Do you know what the NC Nurses Association is really up to in Raleigh?

You might be surprised.

The NC Nurses Association operates a major PAC in North Carolina's state legislature.

Last year, the NC Nurses PAC spent more than $140,000 on campaign contributions to politicians in North Carolina’s state legislature. The large majority of those contributions go to Republicans.

That means the NC Nurses PAC has donated tens of thousands of dollars – funded by your contributions – to radical-right politicians who are passing sweeping abortion bans, racist partisan gerrymanders, weakening North Carolina’s gun safety laws and defunding our schools.

Are these nurses’ values?

Are they yours?

Republican State Senator Joyce Krawiec: NCNA's Senate Legislator of the Year?

In September 2023, the NCNA gave Republican State Senator Joyce Krawiec its “Legislator of the Year” award.

Is this what nurses want?

We don’t think so, either.

The NCNA is a member-based organization, whose leadership is elected by the membership. That means your voice – and your support – really matters.

Tell the leaders of the NC Nurses Association to stop funding radical right-wing extremism in our legislature:

Trish Richardson, President:

Tina Gordon, CEO:

Manager of Political Engagement:

Remember what Grandma said: honey catches more flies than vinegar. We ask that you be respectful and polite – but also firm – in your outreach to NCNA leaders.

And if the NCNA won’t pull their contributions to radical politicians, perhaps it’s time to pull your contributions to the NC Nurses PAC.

Remember: it’s your money. And the NCNA is your organization, too. With your help, the NCNA can reflect the values and ethical core that the organization models for itself. But only if nurses are informed, and speak up.

Help build progress for North Carolina.
