Membership Model Restructure

ENA is preparing to launch a new membership and pricing structure that includes the first adjustments to member dues since 2015. 

Since then, ENA has expanded member resources, benefits and overall membership value for its dedicated community of emergency nurses. This new approach puts ENA on a path to 60,000 members by 2026, growth that will further strengthen ENA as the premier organization for the emergency nursing specialty.

Notable changes with the new membership model will include:

  • Early Career Support - The new Early Career Nurse tiers offer graduated dues to support newer nurses with lower-priced ENA memberships through their formative years. 
  • Earned Lifetime Membership - Lifetime memberships will become merit-based to reward the dedication of longtime members. This status is earned after 20 consecutive years of ENA membership, with no dues paid once a member has reached this milestone.

With these changes come questions about the new structure and what it means to ENA members. This FAQ page, which will be updated as new information becomes available, aims to answer some of the most common questions.
