As the specialty nursing organization for emergency nurses in New Jersey, we are committed to the advancement of emergency nursing. There are currently four chapters in New Jersey; Jersey Shore, Northern, Southern and West Central. Emergency Nurses are involved in every aspect of emergency care including; prehospital, special care and air medical transport; specialty centers including trauma, pediatric, cardiac and stroke care; urgent care centers; injury prevention and many other areas. Advocating for emergency nurses, excellence in emergency care and patient safety is viewed as a core responsibility of the NJENA.
For 35 years, NJENA has hosted the Emergency Care Conference in Atlantic City, now the third largest emergency nursing conference in the nation.
