DES PLAINES, Ill., (August 28,
2014) – The Emergency
(ENA) today announced the
appointment of Anne
Manton, PhD, PMHNP-BC, FAEN, FAAN,
as Editor-in-Chief of the Association’s Journal of Emergency Nursing (JEN). Manton has served as the Journal’s
interim editor-in-chief since September.
Manton, who now specializes in psychiatric and mental health care, brings
extensive emergency nursing experience to this role, as well as decades of
involvement with ENA. She served as president of the Association in 1998, and
was previously a contributing editor to JEN.
Since being named interim
Editor-in-Chief, Manton has led several initiatives improving the quality and
accessibility of JEN. A more comprehensive manuscript reviewer selection
process is now in place, along with a robust review panel, including the
addition of two statistician reviewers. Manton is also striving to provide
greater exposure for online-only articles.
“As the ENA board looked at
the future of JEN and how it fits into ENA’s strategic plan, it was evident
that Dr. Manton not only has the expertise to elevate the Journal, but has
already made substantial contributions since she began serving as the interim
editor,” said ENA president Deena Brecher, MSN, RN, APN, ACNS-BC, CEN, CPEN.
“Her clinical and editorial expertise, leadership skills and involvement with
ENA provide a solid foundation for continuing to produce a Journal with the
highest level of editorial excellence.”
In addition to her work with
JEN, Manton is also a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner at Cape Cod
Hospital and a Nurse Planner for Western Schools.
JEN is the official
peer-reviewed journal of ENA, and reaches more emergency nurses,
emergency/trauma departments and emergency department managers of any journal.
Coverage includes original, evidence-based practice and professional research and
updates from the field.
