Call for Courses and Faculty
2007 ENA Annual Conference
Salt Lake City, Utah
September 27-29, 2007
Join us as a faculty member for the 2007 ENA Annual Conference, September 27 � 29 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Although next year�s meeting seems la long way off, the selection process for faculty and courses is about to begin, and interested individuals are encouraged to submit course proposals by Friday, October 6, 2006. Faculty chosen to present will receive complimentary registration, airfare, hotel, and per diem.
Share your knowledge and experience with an international audience of emergency nurses that includes advanced practice nurses, trauma coordinators, managers, administrators, medical directors, clinical specialists, prehospital coordinators, and educators. Areas of focus for the program are: clinical, advanced clinical, advanced practice, pharmacology, research, education, wellness, leadership and professional issues, and injury prevention. Share your creative solutions that address ENA�s three clinical priorities (ED Crowding, nursing shortage, and patient safety).
The standard course length is 75 minutes. Faculty are encouraged to present two separate topics or be prepared to repeat their lecture(s). Standard courses requiring multiple faculty are discouraged unless a convincing need can be demonstrated.
As we continue to develop the Center for Advanced Practice Learning (CAPL), courses specifically tailored for nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists will receive strong consideration. Submissions for CAPL courses can be didactic lectures of a traditional 75-minute length or 3-hour workshops involving interactive or hands-on skills.
Additionally, proposals for presessions also are requested. These workshops, containing in-depth content presentation, should be 3 hours in length and address topics that apply to the majority of the emergency nursing audience.
Proposals are reviewed and scored for clarity of the course description, objectives, and content outline, creativity of proposed presentation, its significance to emergency nursing, and the speaker�s presentation skills and history. Course proposals must be submitted in the format outlined below. Incomplete proposals will not be reviewed. If you prefer, an interactive electronic form can be obtained by contacting Educational Services at AnnualConference@ena.org. Mail your proposal to:
