Academy of Emergency Nursing

Established 2004

California Fellows in the Academy of Emergency Nursing

The Academy of Emergency Nursing was established by the Emergency Nurses Association on Sept. 28, 2004, to honor emergency nurses who:

  • Have made enduring, substantial contributions to emergency nursing
  • Advance the profession of emergency nursing, including the health care system in which emergency nursing is delivered
  • Provide visionary leadership to ENA and AEN

The body of work produced by AEN Fellows goes well beyond being an outstanding nurse and a devoted ENA member. Below is the current list of California Fellows in the Academy of Emergency Nursing. California Fellows are a resource to anyone considering applying to the academy at some point in the future. Please reach out to any fellow.
