Updates from ENA

  • Published November 30, 2021

In honor of Emergency Nurses Week last month, we’re sharing a few updates from the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA). The ENA is one of the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Innovation and Improvement Center's five collaborative partners.

  • In 2020, ENA committed to advancing the conversation regarding important diversity, equity and inclusivity topics. Through its newly created diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) webpage, the association shares information about its commitment to DEI as well as valuable resources including webinars, ENA Podcast episodes and external resources.
  • ENA President Ron Kraus, MSN, RN, EMT, CEN, ACNS-BC, TCRN, released a statement to announce the association’s support for the Biden Administration’s Vaccination Plan. Within the statement, Kraus mentions how the pandemic is contributing to overcrowding and burnout; the plan’s ability to move the United States in the right direction to reduce case numbers and lessens the public health crisis’ impact on emergency departments; that nurses have been voted the most trusted profession for nearly two decades; and that it’s time for everyone to hear the stories about what COVID is doing to patients and nurses around the world.
  • ENA added new resources to its extensive library, including a Hemorrhage Control position statement, Disaster Emergency Essentials toolkit, and Caring for Children with Sickle Cell Disease infographic. Find these and more practice resources here. (Log in or register to access.)
  • ENA is currently accepting education proposals for Emergency Nursing 2022, scheduled for Sept. 30-Oct. 3, 2022, in Denver. The submission deadline is Jan. 19, 2022. Find more details here.
