Dear Fellow AAENP Members,

On behalf of the AAENP Board of Directors and the Conference Planning Committee, I want to thank all of you who attended the EmergNP 2023 conference in Hempstead, NY. We had an incredible turnout of attendees and vendors from around the country, making this the most successful conference we have ever held! From clinical and leadership presentations to inspiring stories of impact and excellence in practice from our keynote speakers, the energy and passion that filled the air for NPs in emergency care was simply invigorating.

The event gave us an opportunity to celebrate our shared dedication to the advancement of the profession, and to strengthen our connections as a unified and collective community. We are excited to announce that the AAENP 2024 Annual Conference will be held just out of Salt Lake City, UT in Provo. Make plans now to join us for skills, networking and timely evidence-based sessions. We hope to see you in Provo!

With gratitude,

President, American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners

Be heard - Don’t miss out on the biggest national survey of Emergency NPs to date! The American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) invites advanced practice registered nurses in emergency care to participate in a 5-minute survey. The purpose of the survey is to understand the current certification status of Nurse Practitioners in emergency settings. Responses will remain anonymous. Feedback is valuable to understanding the current workforce landscape and the continued improvement of emergency care. The link to the survey is: 

The survey will close on May 1, 2023.
