Emergency Nurses Association 2018 Conference

The annual Emergency Nurses Association conference is dedicated to the emergency nursing profession and it will be held in the City of Bridges at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center (Pittsburgh, Pa.), Sept. 26 - 29, 2018. "Emergency Nursing 2018" will bring attendees unique opportunities for hands-on education, access to cutting-edge research and renowned experts in emergency medicine as well as opportunities to network with nurses from around the world. There are numerous ways to take advantage of the education and networking opportunities at the conference this year. Attendees can earn over 29 contact hours and choose from more than 160 sessions ranging from pediatrics and geriatrics, to leadership, trauma, advanced practice and forensics. All attendees have the opportunity to build their own personal agenda by pre-registering for their desired sessions, including hands on cadaver and ultrasound labs.

This year, there will be more advanced practice content available too. In partnership with the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP),ENA has created a full day Advanced Practice Procedural Skills Lab that allows attendees to participate in hands-on practice elements, two interactive simulations to promote clinical reasoning skills, a basic suturing workshop and more. This experience can be further enhanced by an advanced practice ten-course track designed to dive deep into common advanced practice emergency nursing skills and address the risks, benefits and possible complications that become considerations practitioners should be versed in.
