ENA Corporate Engagement Council Celebrates Five Years

February 21, 2024 Corporate Engagement Council Emergency Nurses Association ENA

Adtalem created new educational track based on council involvement

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (Feb. 21, 2024) – In its fifth year, the Emergency Nurses Association’s Corporate Engagement Council is focused on advancing the emergency nursing profession and addressing key issues facing the profession including, building the emergency nurse pipeline, AI and how it impacts emergency nursing, boarding and overcrowding in EDs, and more.

Created in 2019, the CEC brings ENA and industry leaders together with a focus on innovation and advances in emergency nursing education, advocacy and research. Council members also participate in dedicated sessions with ENA Board members and leaders centered on discussion of, and planning for, future initiatives to advance emergency nursing.

As a result of its CEC involvement in the council, Chamberlain, through Adtalem developed a new educational track for nurses, “A Practice Ready Specialty Focused Model.” This was a partnership between Chamberlain University and ENA to address building a diverse and prepared pipeline of emergency nurses.

“ENA values its partnership with industry professionals, as we all have a common goal of advancing the nursing specialty while providing the best care to our patients,” said ENA President Chris Dellinger, MBA, BSN, RN, FAEN. “Adtalem’s new course is a perfect example of what can happen when these groups come together and share ideas with the goal of advancing the emergency nursing profession.”

Corporate Engagement Council members include: Chamberlain University, Walden University, Elsevier, HealthStream, Kurin, Mednition, Stryker and Teleflex.
