The California State Council is open to all members and students interested in emergency nursing. State Council meetings are a great way to stay informed on what's happening in emergency nursing at the state, local and national levels; network with colleagues; and socialize with friends (both new and old). We discuss hot topics such as Ambulance Offload Times, current legislative proposals, TNCC/ENPC, and much more. Additionally, it's an opportunity to bring up emerging issues to discuss with colleagues. Much of the CA ENA work is done by various committees. A full list of committees can be found at https://californiaena.org/committees/. Each committee meets during the meeting, allowing all attendees to gain insight on those topics. Any member can become a member of any committee.

Please know that your California ENA State Council is here to provide continued support and guidance during this challenging time in emergency medicine.
