Description

The Great 100 of North Carolina is a non-profit organization that annually recognizes 100 Registered Nurses from all areas of nursing practice for their contributions to patient care and the nursing profession. The Great 100 also awards scholarships annually to deserving students in nursing education, from Associate to Master’s Degree programs.

Each year, the Great 100 Award and Scholarship recipients are recognized at a black-tie Gala. This year, the Gala will be held on Saturday, October 5th at the Embassy Suites Charlotte- Concord/Golf Resort & Spa, NC. There will be opportunities to support the Great 100 through Alumni Sales, silent auctions, and donations. Dinner, the award ceremony and dancing will complete this special evening. Please come support your Great 100 nurses!
