ENA Educational Services invites you to lend your expertise to the creation of a new blended course, including online, self-study content and small group, case-based learning, entitled, Course in Advanced Trauma Nursing (CATN). This course aims to further emergency nurses’ knowledge and critical thinking by applying higher level concepts to emergency nursing practice. If you have advanced nursing expertise, please consider lending your knowledge to this exciting new course.
Those interested in becoming a contributing author must meet the following criteria:
- A licensed registered nurse with a nursing degree and extensive professional work experience in emergency nursing. Applicants interested in writing on special populations or other specialty areas should have work expertise related to that population or area.
- A minimum of a master’s degree in nursing.
- Previous experience in writing for publication or presenting on the subject matter or experience in teaching the subject in a formal academic program.
- Excellent writing skills and interpersonal communication.
- Ability and willingness to commit to established timeframe for writing and subsequent revisions of content.
Authors are expected to participate in the author orientation program, to be presented in a webinar format. A biographical data/conflict of interest form is required. Applications are accepted until 8 a.m. CDT Monday, October 29, 2012.
CATN will consist of two parts. The first 10 chapters will be foundational content; reviewing and expanding the emergency nurse’s knowledge base of physiology, pathophysiology and common pathways of illness and injury in the emergency patient. The next 11 chapters are application of this knowledge in case-based learning, focusing on a systemic perspective of the emergency patient. The format will be blended with content presented in an online, self-learning environment, followed by a group discussion in a virtual or live classroom.
Content will be evidence based and reflect current best practice and guidelines. References for the chapters will be within the past 5 years with an emphasis on high quality research from peer-reviewed journals.
The required format for content is electronic submission. Additional guidelines and format information will be provided to authors pending completion of the Author Agreement and author orientation session.
