ENA Mentoring Program

Are you looking for a way to share your expertise and support ENA members? Seeking guidance from peers to help you achieve your goals?

Enroll in the ENA Mentoring Program on ENA CONNECT in just four easy steps!

The ENA Mentoring Program is a new free benefit available to all current ENA members. This member-exclusive online networking and career development resource helps you establish short-term or long-term mentoring relationships with your emergency nursing colleagues. The program created in partnership with the Academy of Emergency Nursing reflects the commitment by ENA and the Academy to inspire professional growth.

There is no in-person requirement to participate, just a willingness to devote the time and energy necessary for a successful collaboration with your mentor or mentee. Mentoring relationships will vary based on the mentee's goals and desired outcomes.
