2020 started off strong for California ENA with our first State Council meeting of the year in beautiful San Diego, followed by our 2020 State and Chapter Leader Orientation Conference. 400+ ENA leaders from across the United States arrived in San Diego to learn, network, and collaborate during three days of training provided by national ENA.

It’s a big year for the Emergency Nurses Association, as it is celebrating its 50th anniversary! And 2020 has been named the Year of the Nurse, so California ENA has big plans for the rest of the year. Stay tuned!
