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.

What’s New at ENA?

As we continue to face challenges of the evolving COVID-19 situation, Cal ENA wants emergency nurses to know that we support the guidelines put out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA).

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