The Emergency Nurses Association is seeking candidates who represent ENA’s mission to advocate for patient safety and excellence in emergency nursing practice to serve as ENA national leaders. Applications are now being accepted for the following positions:
The ENA Board of Directors provides critical leadership to further our mission of advocacy for patient safety and excellence in emergency nursing practice. It is also an opportunity for emergency nurses to enhance and elevate their careers, network with the top leaders in healthcare, and to have an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
The ENA Nominations and Elections Committee oversees ENA’s annual national election. The Committee solicits and mentors potential candidates and reviews national candidate applications. It also provides an excellent opportunity for further involvement with ENA including the potential for a future role on the ENA Board of Directors.
Incorporated in the newly approved bylaws, Nominations and Elections Committee members will serve three-year terms.
