KY 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.

Rule The Resus Conference:

ESCAPE YOUR TRIBE MENTALITY! Join the Bluegrass Chapter of the Kentucky Emergency Nurses Association for a day of RESUSCITATION.COMMUNICATION.COLLABORATION!

The idea for this one-day conference is born out of continual conversation about the tendency to revert to our natural tribalism when the stakes are high, doctors… nurses… pre-hospital. Namely, a SMACC talk by pre-hospital/retrieval nurse Ashley Liebig at DAS SMACC in Berlin. Overwhelming evidence supports teamwork and collegial interdisciplinary care leads to the most efficient and safe patient care. Therefore, it is only natural that we feed these talks and lessons learned back to the nursing community that supports the mission of ENA.

And that’s not all… Join us after the conference for The After-Party which will be held on the castle rooftop at sundown to unwind and kick-back with friends and music by local artist Josyln and The Sweet Compressions (a fitting name for a Resus Conference!) Tickets are available for purchase and proceeds will directly benefit the ENA Foundation.

The conference hashtag will be #RTR18. Please tag all relevant tweets accordingly and help us support this huge endeavor.
