What has ENA done for me?
I have been a member of ENA for more than 45 years and this has been a very important part of my life. Being certified as an emergency nurse has provided me with great personal and professional satisfaction. I have always felt that education is vital for nurses to be recognized as professionals. High quality initial and ongoing knowledge is a vital component for all nurses. Last winter I received a call from current nation ENA President, Matt Powers, and ENA Foundation chairman, Thelma Kuska, informing me that I had been appointed to the Foundation Board of Trustees. I could not have been more honored. I felt this provided me a way to help emergency nurses to be able to seek additional education. While reviewing scholarship applications submitted to the Foundation, I was so impressed by the dedication and the many nurses who were seeking education to raise their level of education and provide better care to all our patients. I can truly say that being a member of the ENA Foundation Management Board is one of the highlights both in my personal and professional life.
