Nursing Enrichment

Our nursing workforce is in critical condition. The U.S. projects a shortage of more than one million nurses by 2020. During this time period, North Carolina's elderly population will double, intensifying the demand for skilled nurses even more. With 24% of the nursing workforce expected to retire within 10 years, the pressure on younger nurses is rising fast. Many of these younger nurses are leaving the profession due to burnout.

At FirstHealth of the Carolinas, we recognize that nurses are the heart and core of patient care. That’s why we are determined to solve this health care crisis – with your help. Supported with funding from The Foundation of FirstHealth, we pursue a number of enrichment initiatives to recruit, support and retain our caring and talented nursing professionals.
