Vital Work of Emergency Nurses Honored Across the Nation During Emergency Nurses Week, October 7-13, 2007
Date:10/9/2007

CHICAGO, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The efforts of America's 100,000 emergency nurses in serving in times of need to provide optimal patient care and improve the nation's health is the central focus of this year's Emergency Nurses Week, which will be celebrated October 7-13.

"Stepping into their lives when they need you most" is the theme chosen by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) to recognize emergency nurses across the country who often serve as the first line in patient care in emergency rooms and are dedicated to serving the critical needs of patients and advocating for appropriate emergency services in the nation's hospitals.

The week is highlighted by Emergency Nurses Day(R) on October 10, a day set aside to pay special honor to emergency nurses and their heartfelt commitment to patients.

"Emergency nurses in the United States play a critical role in patient care and promoting health and wellness," said Donna L. Mason, RN, MS, CEN president of the Emergency Nurses Association. "Today, emergency nurses serve a crucial role in disaster response, research, flight and ground transport, geriatric care, injury prevention, and as advocates for increased funding of emergency services on the state and federal level."

The ENA, through its state councils and chapters representing more than 32,000 emergency nurses around the world, will be celebrating Emergency Nurses Week with numerous programs and events, including:

-- Official observances of Emergency Nurses Week with proclamations from

mayors and governors

-- Presentations by emergency nurses at schools, civic clubs and local

businesses on injury prevention and appropriate use of emergency

services

-- Health and wellness fairs

-- Distribution of Emergency Nurses Week posters

-- Awarding gifts and ENA memberships to emergency nurses
