The Academy of Emergency Nursing was established by the Emergency Nurses Association on Sept. 28, 2004, to honor emergency nurses who:
• Have made enduring, substantial contributions to emergency nursing.
• Advance the profession of emergency nursing, including the health care system in which emergency nursing is delivered.
• Provide visionary leadership to ENA and AEN.
The body of work left by AEN Fellows goes well beyond being an outstanding nurse and a devoted ENA member. To date, more than 160 extraordinary emergency nurses have been inducted into the AEN and proudly list FAEN as one of their professioanl credentials.
