ENA Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are at the heart of ENA’s organization

ENA volunteers provide a link to nursing practice, education and special needs that benefit our members. As a volunteer, you will have many opportunities at the state, local, and national level to network with your fellow nurses around the country. Through your collaborative work, you will be able to influence the emergency nursing profession as well as to advance your own professional development.

Take a moment to review the ENA volunteer opportunities and participation requirements to see what might be a good fit for you.


Volunteer Roles
ENA National Committee
ENA Committees reflect the key areas of focus for ENA as determined by the Board of Directors. Committees are typically ongoing with two to three year terms depending on the area of focus and outcomes. Each committee has a specific charge that is reviewed and approved annually by the Board of Directors. There are three standing committees as defined in the ENA bylaws: Finance, Resolutions, and Nominations.


ENA Work Team

Work Teams are typically associated with completing a single set of tasks over a set period of time. Generally, work team members remain until charges are completed.


ENA Advisory Council

Advisory councils have rotating terms that range from one to two years. Councils help provide guidance and direction as relates to a specific topic or cohort.


ENA Foundation Committee

ENA Foundation committees reflect the key areas of focus for ENA Foundation as determined by the ENA Foundation Board of Trustees. The three ENA Foundation committees are ENA Foundation Fundraising Committee, ENA Foundation Scholarship Committee, and ENA Foundation Research Grant Committee. These committees are ongoing with one to two-year terms. Each committee has specific charges set by the Foundation Board of Trustees.
