To our AAENP members & partners,

With sincere appreciation and a profound sense of accomplishment, I write to you as my term as the President of AAENP draws to a close. Serving in this role for the past 2.5 years has been a privilege and an honor, and I want to express my appreciation for the unwavering support and commitment each of you has shown to our organization.

As I prepare to pass the torch to our incoming president Dr. Melanie Hallman, I find myself reflecting on the remarkable journey we have undertaken together. The last few years have presented challenges that none of us could have foreseen, and yet, thanks to the collective strength of our membership, we have emerged stronger than ever.

I am delighted to share with you some of the key achievements that we have collectively accomplished during my term:

  • Last year, AAENP published the Practice Toolkit for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses in Emergency Care. This invaluable resource serves as a comprehensive guide for APRNs in emergency care settings, benefiting employers, regulatory boards, practicing clinicians, policymakers, and educators alike.
  • In the spring of 2022, AAENP initiated co-hosting quarterly Journal Club meetings alongside the Advanced Emergency Nurse Journal, our society journal. The overwhelming success of these meetings, with consistently high attendance, has surpassed that of most other NP journals.
  • Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, our membership remained stable. We celebrated a significant milestone with our first post-pandemic, in-person EmergNP Emerge Stronger conference in Long Island earlier this year, marking it as one of our largest national conferences to date.
  • Significant updates were made to the website to enhance a streamlined navigation and to showcase a compilation of ENP resources
  • Numerous new partnerships which provide additional member benefits, including curated news to your inbox from Emergency Care Today
  • AAENP collaborated with the Emergency Nurses Association to merge competencies for emergency nurse practitioners into a single set. The 2021 Emergency Nurse Practitioner Competencies were endorsed by the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties in 2022, enhancing our professional standards.
  • AAENP has continued to lead the national discussions regarding the ENP as a population focus for APRNs. Our recently updated position statement, Re-envisioning the Emergency Nurse Practitioner Role, reaffirms our commitment to acknowledging and protecting the ENP's role in emergency care.
  • Just a few days ago, Springer Publishing released the Emergency Nurse Practitioner Scope and Standards of Practice book for purchase. This publication consolidates ENP competencies and standards of practice in a single volume, covering key topics and trends related to the ENP, including academic program validation, ENP certification, and full practice authority.

These accomplishments are a testament to the dedication, collaboration, and expertise of our members. I am proud of what we have achieved together, and I have full confidence in Dr. Hallman's ability to lead AAENP to even greater heights in the coming years. Thank you for entrusting me with the privilege of serving as your president. I look forward to witnessing the continued growth and success of AAENP.

All my best,

Wesley Davis

In Memoriam: Mary Kamienski 

While many have heard already, AAENP wants members to know that Mary Creamer Kamienski, a trailblazer in the field of emergency nursing, mentor, and recognized educator of countless students and recipient of numerous professional awards, died peacefully at her home on November 29, 2023 at the age of 84.  “Dr. Mary” was the founder of the UMDNJ (now Rutgers) FNP/ENP program. She has been an unstoppable force in the advocacy for emergency & advanced practice nursing.


Mary was an avid reader, active member of St. Pius X Church, enjoyed travelling including professional conferences, attending many Pittsburgh Steelers games and watching Jeopardy every night. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family, friends and colleagues.  She was the first female Captain of the Montville Township First Aid Squad, a Cub Scout and Webelo Pack Leader, legendary dancer and highly skilled bowler having a high game of 298!

Donations to honor Mary can be made to St. Jude's Children’s Research Hospital.  Her loss will be felt by the hundreds, if not thousands, of students and nurses she has mentored.


The next Journal Club will meet Tuesday, February 13, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. PST (8 pm EST) via Zoom. Dr. Wesley Davis and Dr. Nicole Martinez, Associate Editors will serve as the moderators for this event. Articles on the homepage to be discussed include
