Amazon Smile starting July 17

Amazon’s fourth-annual Prime Day is coming up on Tuesday, July 17 and will feature one-of-a-kind deals exclusively for Prime members. This is one of the biggest shopping days of the year and a great time to remind your supporters to shop at and Amazon will donate to Arizona Emergency Nurses Association.


All of Arizona ENA’s fund raising through Amazon  goes directly to the state’s contribution to Emergency Nursing Foundation activities.


Do you know a CEN® or CPEN® nurse  or an organization  that rises to every occasion and shines in every situation in the promotion of specialty certification?

Give them the recognition they deserve!

Challenging situations are woven into every emergency nurse’s daily routine.

Certified nurses represent the best of the best – superlative knowledge, expertise and professionalism – which empowers them to deliver better outcomes for the patients they serve.

It’s time, once again, to recognize the exceptional nurses and organizations who serve as the living, breathing embodiment of the value and benefits of certification.

Awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • Distinguished CEN (Certified Emergency Nurse)
  • Distinguished CPEN (Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse)
  • Honorary Certification Recognition – Small Organization
  • Honorary Certification Recognition – Large Organization

Our honored nurses will rise and shine this year, as they’re honored at the BCEN Certification Recognition Breakfast at Emergency Nursing 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA, on September 28.

CEN and CPEN nomination instructions are available online, as well as the instructions for organization award nominations.
