ENA Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are at the heart of ENA’s organization

ENA volunteers provide a link to nursing practice, education and special needs that benefit our members. As a volunteer, you will have many opportunities at the state, local, and national level to network with your fellow nurses around the country. Through your collaborative work, you will be able to influence the emergency nursing profession as well as to advance your own professional development.

Take a moment to review the ENA volunteer opportunities and participation requirements to see what might be a good fit for you. 



Volunteer Roles

ENA Committees reflect the key areas of focus for ENA as determined by the Board of Directors.

There are three standing committees as defined in the ENA bylaws: Finance, Resolutions, and Nominations.

Work Teams are typically associated with completing a single set of tasks over a set period of time. Generally, work team members remain until charges are completed.
