Southern Arizona SIG

We’re hiding a bunch of great Emergency Nurses in southern Arizona!  Come visit us on the Southern Arizona SIG page on this website (you can find it at the top of this page).  please click on the link for featured locations

On behalf of the SO AZ ENA SIG leadership have a special and important Emergency Nurses Week 10/09-10/15, and know you are all thought of and appreciated for all your work on behalf of the patients, our communities and our profession!!

It was good to hear from many of you while attending the Annual/National ENA conference in Los Angeles- it is looking like the 2017 event in ST Louis will shape up as terrific for educational content and networking options. A number of colleagues have preregistered while onsite in LA, but you can also access the very early bird registration fee of $580.00 on the www.ena.org website, you can pay in full or just place a $100.00 deposit to lock in the price. This low fee is till late DEC, check the website for more details.

A summary of the resolutions- GA16-01-Recognition for International Military Members was adopted, GA16-02 Trending Effects of Marijuana- was adopted, GA16-03 Education in Care of Behavioral Health Patients was adopted, GA16-04 Standardizing Handoff Reports- was voted down after a lengthy discussion of efforts and failures from numerous other states, GA 1605 Proposal to Amend Bylaws was sent for additional revisions, GA16-06- Handguns was again this year defeated but the assembly did have discussion open among all the delegate for over 2 hours to invite feedback, concerns, etc. both as a personal issue and professional one. The discussions were lively and much information was gleaned.

Intersted in taking a more acitve role??  President and Secretary of the SoSIG available starting January 2018– precepting for 2017 open!
