Membership Model Restructure

ENA is preparing to launch a new membership and pricing structure that includes the first adjustments to member dues since 2015. This new membership model encourages early-career nurses to join, and stay with, ENA, while also creating merit-based lifetime memberships to reward the longevity of members.

The new graduated dues support newer nurses with affordable ENA memberships through their formative years. Lifetime memberships are earned after 20 consecutive years of ENA membership, with no dues paid once a member has reached this milestone.

Since the last dues increase in 2015, ENA has expanded member resources, benefits and overall membership value to 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 emergency nurses.

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.
