ENA is the only professional nursing association dedicated to defining the future of emergency nursing and emergency care through advocacy, expertise, innovation and leadership. ENA fosters this mission through public safety, continuing education, nursing research and promotion of the profession, which serve to maintain quality of patient care and have a positive influence in our state.
