“Our Regional Symposium Series is rooted in the idea of putting the spotlight on local experts in emergency care and clinical skill development,” said ENA President Mike Hastings, MSN, RN, CEN. “Attendees in Nashville can expect a great educational experience provided by a talented lineup of speakers, including the hometown presenters from Vanderbilt.”

The symposium’s first day includes ENA Board Member Terry Foster’s fun and nostalgic look at emergency nursing through the years, as well as a panel featuring local emergency care providers discussing disaster preparation, response and the lessons learned from regional incidents. Nevada ENA State Council President Dustin Bass closes out the symposium on a high note as he encourages attendees to “Amplify their Awesomeness” when providing high-quality patient care.
