What Members are saying…

“Opinions regarding APRN practice in the ED have varied widely among regulatory agencies, professional organizations, hospital credentialing departments, and even APRNs themselves.  ENPs need a voice and just as in practice – we are stronger as a team.  I joined other members in Boston at AAENP’s 2nd Annual General Assembly, and gained a great deal of insight into what the future holds for us.  AAENP is the specialty organization for ENPs, and I am very excited about the future of this association and its impact on our practice!”

“As an emergency room nurse practitioner it is essential that I practice current evidence based medicine.  AAENP offers me networking opportunities and access to some of the top APRN's in our field…Emergency providers need a national organization specific to our needs and AAENP provides that.  I would encourage every emergency nurse practitioner to join this dedicated group of individuals who are committed to promoting high quality, evidence based practice.”

Vanderbilt Emergency Nurse Practitioner students in Nashville, TN participated in the inaugural Emergency Medicine Day of Service this month by assisting at Project C.U.R.E., the largest provider of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world. Project C.U.R.E helps to bridge the gap in health resources in the developing world, empowering doctors and nurses with the tools they need to treat disease, deliver vaccines, perform life-changing surgeries and ensure safe childbirth. The students helped sort and organize donated medical supplies that will be shipped to resource-limited communities across the globe.  It’s never too early to begin planning to join AAENP and EMRA next October!
