ENA provides the gold standard of care for emergency care of patients of all ages. There
are position statements, clinical practice guidelines, and many free online resources to help you
make your ED the best it can be.

Meet and talk with others from ED’s in the surrounding area. Share ideas for problem
solving and learn from others who have experienced what you are struggling with today. Make
friends. Develop contacts at other hospitals. Have some fun and come to our fun events like an
Oriole’s baseball game, a wounded warriors picnic, or an evening out after a meeting or
Advocacy in Government Affairs
We have a very active and passionate group to advocate for emergency nurses and the
issues that every emergency department and its staff struggle with today e.g. workplace
violence, and not enough psychiatric inpatient beds. We atttend Maryland Nurses Night in
Annapolis, and Day on the Hill in DC. We meet with our senators and representatives to ask for
their support on legislation that affects emergency nursing. Last year we advocated to preserve
the ability of EMS providers to administer controlled substances in the field. November 2017
this was signed into law at a national level. It is exciting to see the impact you can have on
health care legislation.
I hope to see many of you over the next year. Please come and join us for our upcoming meetings and
events. We would love to have you! Watch the website for updates and follow us on social media.
