The lantern symbolizes exceptional practice and innovative performance in leadership, practice, education, advocacy and research. Lanterns are making their way around the world highlighting the incredible work done by local, state and international ENA members. The 2018 Planning Guide offers suggestions and provides direction on how to showcase your lantern on ENA’s social media channels, so we can all #followtheflame on its journey.
Post the most ENA Lantern sightings on social media, and your state could be recognized at Emergency Nursing 2018!
We’re calling on members to post as many quality pictures with the lantern as possible by Aug. 31. The state council with the most combined pictures or videos posted on social media will receive an award from ENA President Jeff Solheim, MSN, RN, CEN, TCRN, CFRN, FAEN, FAAN, during the opening session at the ENA conference in Pittsburgh.
The winning state will also be featured in a future issue of ENA Connection and, of course, on ENA’s social media channels.
Quick Tips for the Challenge
Although this challenge is based on the quantity of photos and video a state posts on social media, participants must follow some guidelines to ensure the posts are quality, thought-provoking and value-added promotions of the ENA Follow the Flame initiative, which is meant to showcase our members’ invaluable contribution to health care and the emergency nursing specialty.
Previous posts will count toward the corresponding state’s tally. That includes any approved photos posted before the State and Chapter Leadership Orientation event in January. These earlier posts are exempt from the state identification, hashtag and ENA tagging rules above. However, we strongly suggest states consider reposting older photos without these identifying features for the best chance of being discovered and counted. ENA is not responsible for not counting unidentified or untagged photos posted prior to SCLO.
