Annual Conference attracts international attendance, including registered emergency nurses, bedside clinicians, advanced practice nurses, trauma coordinators, managers, administrators, medical directors, clinical specialists, prehospital coordinators, and educators.

A variety of learning formats are presented at Annual Conference:

  • Standard Concurrent: 75 minutes.
  • Deep Dive Sessions: In depth exploration of topics extended from the traditional 75 minutes to 165 minutes.
  • Fast Tracks: 30-minute sessions allowing the faculty to provide a factual, rapid paced presentation that provides the attendee with the latest, need to know, cutting edge information. Faculty wishing to present these brief content driven sessions should convey their ability to do so through their content outline. These sessions should differ in scope from traditional concurrent presentations.
  • Presessions: Interactive in-depth advanced practice content presentations are also requested. These sessions should be 3-8 hours in length.

Faculty are encouraged to present two separate topics or be prepared to repeat their lecture(s). Courses requiring multiple faculty are discouraged unless a convincing need can be demonstrated in the proposal. Submitting a course proposal does not guarantee acceptance. Course proposals are peer-reviewed based on 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. Incomplete proposals will not be accepted. Formal notification of selection will occur approximately 90 days after submission deadline date.

Please contact ENA Conference Services Department at or by calling 800/900-9659 ext. 4117 if you have any questions regarding the submission process. Proposals must be electronically submitted to by the submission deadline of Monday, October 14, 2013.
