California 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).

ENA President Mike Hastings, MSN, RN, CEN has said, “As the safety net for our communities, emergency departments across the country are filled with patients who have nowhere else to go for their health care needs. The emergence of novel coronavirus as a possible pandemic, amid an already challenging flu season, serves as a reminder that we must ensure our health communities – first responders, public health departments and hospitals – have the necessary resources to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to provide the best possible care to all patients.”

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

What happens at a State Council Meeting? In the morning our various committees meet, you can sit in on any of them that interest you. The committees are a great way to learn about what’s happening in our profession. During the afternoon session the Board and Chapter reports are given, always interesting and a place to learn what is happening up and down the State, as well as hear new ideas.
