Emergency Nurses Association Stages Largest Conference Ever

Emergency Nursing 2015 in Orlando Prepares Emergency Nurses for the Future

DES PLAINES, IL--(Marketwired - September 21, 2015) - The Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) is bringing two major nursing conferences together for the first time to stage the largest event to train emergency nurses in the organization's history. Emergency Nursing 2015, which focuses on preparing nurses for the future of emergency nursing, will be held September 28 to October 3 at Orlando's Orange County Convention Center.

The first-ever integrated ENA conference features hands-on training, continuing education on clinical and leadership topics, and exhibits featuring industry innovations. More than 190 education sessions and over 230 exhibitors will provide attendees with a variety of options to fit their educational needs.

"The emergency nursing industry is changing at lightning speed," said ENA president Matthew F. Powers, MS, BSN, RN, MICP, CEN. "With evolving global health conditions, new diseases and safety concerns for emergency nurses who are on the front lines of patient care, ENA is preparing nurses to successfully and safely provide the emergency care of the future."

The AdvancED, an interactive mock emergency department, allows nurses to refine their emergency care skills through hands-on emergency scenarios and is a major attraction at this year's conference. Only a few hospitals around the country have the resources to offer this type of training. Nurses practice lifesaving techniques on a low risk mannequin and receive immediate feedback on simulation exercises, reinforcing the best practices.

The sessions at Emergency Nursing 2015 give nurses the opportunity to learn from experts about important emergency nursing issues, including emerging infectious diseases, mass casualty incidents, workplace violence, ED redesign and more. Keynote speakers include industry leaders such as world-class guitar player and comedian, Mike Rayburn, award-winning, educational medical rap video creator, thought leader and healthcare speaker Dr. Zubin "ZDoggMD" Damania, and award-winning filmmaker and photographer for The American Nurse Project, Carolyn Jones.

The in-demand Ultrasound and Cadaver Labs return to the ENA conference this year and offer unique opportunities for hands-on learning.
