Kentucky ENA is a 501(c)(3) organization and affiliate of the National ENA. As such,  we embrace the mission of the National ENA, which is to advocate for patient safety and excellence in emergency nursing practice.

The Kentucky ENA is comprised of approximately 550 nurses from across Kentucky. We are recognized by National ENA as a “three-tier state” meaning that we have not only the National and a State ENA infrastructure, but that we also have regional chapters that exist to support the membership. Kentucky ENA members can and are encouraged to participate in ENA on any and all of these tiers.  Our State Council is governed by an executive board and committees. All chapters have representation. The State Council meets bi-monthly; dates and locations will be posted on this site.

2017 KY ENA Board Elections Now Open


KY Statewide Trauma & Emergency Medicine

Wednesday, October 26 – Friday, October 28, 2016

The Campbell House, Lexington, KY

On behalf of the University of Kentucky, Norton HealthCare and KentuckyOne Health, it is our privilege to invite you to participate in the 2016 Kentucky Statewide Trauma and Emergency Medicine Symposium.

This event will describe effective and appropriate patient care that decreases patient morbidity and mortality, while improving the medical knowledge of healthcare providers; all in an effort to produce positive patient outcomes.

Topics presented will provide our referring hospitals’ trauma education on stabilization of the injured patient prior to transfer to a higher level of care. Attendees will define all necessary ancillary healthcare providers/services that are needed to address the injuries of the patient along with describing and correcting errors and unsafe practices that affect the patient negatively. Through presentations, panel discussions and interactive formats, our expert local, regional and national speakers offer basic and cutting edge guidelines and technology for evaluation, diagnosis and management of trauma patients.
