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.

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.
