ENP600x400In Case of Emergency

Every day, in thousands of emergency departments across the globe, nurses do amazing things and often without the recognition they deserve. To celebrate all emergency nurses for their hard work, perseverance and indelible impact on society, ENA is proud to partner with filmmaker Carolyn Jones on the Emergency Nurse Project – a full-length documentary which takes an up-close, personal look at this special group of health care professionals.

ENA and Carolyn Jones Productions are proud to share the next in a series of clips from the upcoming Emergency Nurse Project film.

Emergency nurses have a unique opportunity to look beyond the result of gun violence and help address the root of the problem in their community.

Domestic violence is a worldwide issue, and emergency nurses are often the first to see victims. It becomes even more difficult for health care providers in small communities when they know the victims on a personal level.

Preventing workplace violence against emergency nurses has long been an ENA priority and, on May 22, 2019, ENA and its member spoke to lawmakers in Washington, D.C., about the epidemic of assaults and attacks on ED nurses.
