ENA's government relations programs are designed to:
Advocate quality patient care, injury prevention, and wellness preparedness
Represent the interests and concerns of emergency care nursing professionals.
Facilitate broad member participation.
Provide a strong unified voice for emergency nursing through legislative and regulatory representation.
ENA’s 2016/2017 Public Policy Agenda
Advocacy is more than just understanding the issues. To make a difference, you have to make your voice heard. The involvement of individual emergency nurses is vital to the success of our grassroots efforts. We encourage all ENA members to use the information provided here and on the EN411 Advocacy Engagement Page site to take an active role in addressing the issues facing emergency nursing.
