June 15, 2018 Awards journal of emergency nursing

The Emergency Nurses Association today announced three Journal of Emergency Nursing (JEN) awards recognizing the publication’s Reviewer of the Year and Authors of the Year.

The JEN Authors of the Year Award recognizes studies that feature content relevant to current emergency nursing practice, demonstrate original thinking and excellence in writing, and stimulate, inspire, and hold the readers’ interest. Annually, JEN Editorial Board members nominate papers and rank them according to established criteria.  

This year’s JEN Authors of the Year are:

  • Amany Farag, PhD, RN, for her paper in the March 2017 issue, Voluntary Medication Error Reporting by ED Nurses: Examining the Association with Work Environment
  • Joan Culley, PhD, MPH, MS, RN, CWOCN, FAAN, for her paper in the July 2017 issue, Validating Signs and Symptoms from an Actual Mass Casualty Incident to Characterize an Irritant Gas Syndrome (GSA) Exposure: A First Step in the Development of a Novel ISGA Triage Algorithm

The JEN Reviewer Award acknowledges the body of work of an individual reviewer who exemplified dependability, timeliness, knowledge about topics, and who provided in-depth, constructive feedback to authors on a consistent basis. 

The 2018 JEN Reviewer of the Year Award recipient is Christian Burchill, PhD, RN, CEN.

“The Journal of Emergency Nursing is an extraordinary resource for our profession and it takes dedicated individuals to ensure the content is timely, relevant and valuable,” said ENA president Jeff Solheim, MSN, RN, CEN, TCRN, CFRN, FAEN, FAAN. “We’re happy to announce the 2018 JEN Award recipients as they educate and inform emergency nurses through their incredible research and writing.”
