Ohio ENA is a 501(c)(3) organization and affiliate of the National ENA. As such, we embrace the mission of the National ENA, which is to advocate for patient safety and excellence in emergency nursing practice. 

Ohio ENA is comprised of approximately 1,400 nurses from across Ohio. We are recognized by National ENA as a "three-tier state” meaning that we have not only the National and a State ENA infrastructure, but that we also have regional chapters that exist to support the membership. Ohio ENA members can and are encouraged to participate in ENA on any and all of these tiers. Additional organizational information is available here. 

Ohio ENA State Council has been recently recognized by the National ENA with several awards: 

  • 2014 State Council Achievement Award          
  • 2013 State Council Achievement Award
  • 2012 State Council Achievement Award
