Emergency Nursing 2021 in Orlando, Florida


ENA is now accepting education proposals for Emergency Nursing 2021, which will be held Sept. 22-25 in Orlando, Florida. Once the submission period is open, you may stop and start your submission at any time. You can save your progress and return to it later, but only prior to the submission deadline.

Presenting at ENA's annual conference offers the opportunity to exchange ideas, network and impact the quality of education for emergency nurses. Educational abstracts should reflect sound adult learning principles and the best thinking in the field, informed by theory, research and practice.

To deliver exceptional learning experiences, preference may be given to proposals that are positioned to deliver a mix of the following:

CONTENT: Reflect innovative, cutting-edge content and evidence-based practice • Present evidence supported by relevant research or data • Explore issues important to diverse audiences • Demonstrate the relevance of lessons through “real-life” case studies

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN: Stimulate and provoke discussion, audience engagement and outcome-focused design • Facilitate knowledge transfer and development of new competencies • Use methods that draw out relevant past knowledge and experiences

Each submission will be blind peer-reviewed by a minimum of three emergency nurses.
