ENA Foundation gives shout-out
for emergency nursing education
Julie Jones, BS, RN, CEN, the 2013 ENA Foundation chairperson, delivered some exciting news during her report at the Leadership Conference Opening Session. The generous donations received in 2012 from ENA members, friends of emergency nursing and corporate partners raised more than $240,000 in scholarships and research grant opportunities to offer ENA members this year.
Jones held a megaphone representing the 2013 State Challenge campaign’s theme, “Shout Out for Emergency Nursing Education.” The ENA Foundation launched the State Challenge campaign during the State and Chapter Leaders Conference on Thursday.
“That is our theme, and our goal is to raise more funds so that we can support more education and emergency nursing research,” Jones said. “One hundred percent of every penny donated to the State Challenge directly supports scholarships and research grants in 2014.”
Jones presented Laura Giles, BS, RN, the ENA Foundation’s immediate past chairperson, with an award for her leadership and service to the foundation. She also thanked everyone who made a difference by donating to the ENA Foundation.
“Most of all, I want to thank you, the ENA member,” Jones said. “I give a shout-out to all of you!”
