  • KYENA State Conference

    In light of the events of this year and the ongoing risk of the spread of COVID 19, the Kentucky State Council ENA has decided to postpone our State Conference to 2021.  
    It is our goal to keep everyone as safe as possible and we simply don't feel we can do that this year.  

    The date has been set for April 15, 2021 at Limestone Hall in Lexington, KY.  

    Although we didn't get to have our 50th Anniversary Celebration, we are determined to deliver the same amazing content and networking for the same time, next year.
  • August State Council Meeting

    Please join us on August 13, 2020 at 1pm EST for the KYENA State Council Meeting.  This meeting will be largely focused on GA and plans for EN20X.  I have a State Captains Webinar next week and am hoping to bring all the information you need to the meeting.  

    The Board Meeting will begin promptly at 1pm EST followed by the General Session Meeting. 

    Hope to see everyone there.

  • Updates from EN19 in Austin!

    What an amazing week at EN19 in Austin, Texas leading up to Emergency Nurses Week!! 11 delegates served Kentucky proud as they contributed to the decisions that impact ENA moving forward as an organization. This has been a huge year for our state as our very own Patti Howard serves as the current ENA national president.

    This Kentucky group also competed against groups from all across the country and came out as the EN19 SimWar CHAMPS!!

    And lastly, Kentucky won the ENA Foundation challenge and absolutely loved having Texas ENA sing “My Old Kentucky Home”!!

    Thank you for your commitment to care and for all that each and everyone one of you do everyday!! Happy Emergency Nurses Week!!
