Presidential Reflection on 2022

Dear AAENP member & colleague,

As we come to the end of another successful year for the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners, I want to take a moment to recognize and appreciate the incredible work that each and every one of you does on a daily basis. As emergency nurse practitioners, your dedication, skill, and compassion are truly inspiring, and I am grateful to represent you in this role.

While everyone is busy during this time of year, it is important to pause and highlight some of the ways that AAENP has served our members, our colleagues, and our patients.   


• Our 2022 virtual conference, "EmergNP," was a huge success, with record-breaking attendance and overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees. We are already looking forward to next year's conference, and we have big plans to make it even better. 

• We also kicked off our journal club with the Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal, which has been a great way for members to stay up-to-date on the latest research and developments in emergency nursing.

• Entered into new partnerships with leading healthcare organizations that offer exclusive member benefits, such as discounted continuing education courses and access to advanced training opportunities.

• Advocated on your behalf through our Nursing Community Coalition collaboration by signing onto letters delivered directly to legislative representatives. 

• Finished a multi-year partnership with ACEP on grant-funded work supporting the dissemination of COVID-19 resources.

• Provided member representatives to appointed Taskforces and workgroups in partnership with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists (ACOG), Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), & the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF), among others.

• Welcomed new leaders to our organization who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table and will help us continue to grow and expand our new initiatives.

I'm perhaps most excited that as we near our 10-year anniversary, that AAENP is now a known name. Our colleagues are looking for us, and we are being noticed!

Clearly, we should be proud of our many accomplishments. Let's celebrate our successes while recognizing the critical work that lies ahead for our profession. As we look ahead to the coming year, I anticipate another successful national conference - this time IN PERSON. Be watching for the details. Many exciting new initiatives are planned for 2023, and I cannot wait to share those with you. Until then, may you have a happy and safe holiday season!

Warmest wishes,

Wesley Davis, President, American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners

Have you tried Rosh Review products yet? Here’s a sample:

A 65-year-old man presents to the clinic for a follow-up of acute diverticulitis. During a recent hospitalization for acute diverticulitis, a CT of the abdomen and pelvis showed an abdominal aortic aneurysm of 5.7 cm. He is unsure whether there is any family history of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. He has a history of hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus. He is currently taking lisinopril 10 mg daily, metformin 1,000 mg twice daily, and glipizide 5 mg once daily.

The patient appears well on-exam. Vital signs show a blood pressure of 130/85 mm Hg, temperature of 97°F, heart rate of 85 bpm, and oxygen saturation of 98% room air. The cardiac exam reveals a regular rate and rhythm with no murmurs, 2+ distal pedal pulses bilaterally, and 2+ radial pulses bilaterally. The abdomen is soft and nondistended with mild tenderness to palpation in the left lower quadrant without guarding or rebound, and there are no palpable pulses or masses. What is the most appropriate next step based on the patient’s diagnosis?

Answer Options:

• Initiate medical treatment with a beta-blocker

• Initiate medical treatment with aspirin and a statin

• Request surgical consultation for elective repair

• Schedule surveillance ultrasound every 6 months

Correct Answer: Request surgical consultation for elective repair
