South Dakota Emergency Nurses Association invites everyone to celebrate the observance of Emergency Nurses Week today through Saturday.
Emergency Nurses Day is Wednesday. This year’s theme, “Every Patient + Every Time = Making a Difference,” reflects the dedication of emergency nurses in the United States and around the world.
Since 1989, the Emergency Nurses Association has celebrated the second Wednesday in October as Emergency Nurses Day, a day set aside to honor emergency nurses for their commitment to patient care.
Starting in 2001, ENA expanded the celebration to devote an entire week to honoring emergency nurses, because one day is simply not enough to recognize all contributions made by emergency nurses.
ENA is the only professional nursing association dedicated to defining the future of emergency nursing and emergency care through advocacy, expertise, innovation and leadership. Founded in 1970, ENA develops and disseminates education and practice standards and guidelines, and affords consultation to both private and public entities regarding emergency nurses and their practice. Additional information is available at ENA’s Web site www.ena.org. For the complete article see the 10-07-2012 issue.
