Government Relations


Just as emergency nurses are advocates for safety and patient care, ENA is an equally determined advocate on the legislative issues affecting emergency nurses. ENAs government relations team tracks federal and state legislation affecting emergency nurses across the country, develops and carries out grassroots lobbying efforts through the EN411 legislative action network, meets with federal legislators and agency officials, and educates emergency nurses and their state councils regarding effective advocacy strategy and practice.

As practicing and former emergency nurses you have the first-hand experience and expertise regarding the effects of healthcare laws and regulations on patient safety and care. This knowledge gives you a unique and important perspective on health care policy. At ENA Government Relations, we are here to help you use this power to make our country’s emergency rooms safer and their patient’s quality of care the best it can be.
