The Massachusetts Emergency Nurses Association (MENA) is an extension of the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) and is responsible for representing the interests of Massachusetts’s Emergency Nurses at the State and National level through education and advocacy. Massachusetts ENA is recognized as the authority and premier community for emergency nursing as evidenced by the development and adoption of practice, research, and educational resources.
As we look to 2024 we will operate the state in a two-tier structure. This means that the state will operate as a single group and without active local chapters. This decision was made with the goal to have an active and robust state organization.
Making a change like this will have impacts and to help support the local experience, next year we will rotate the location of the state meetings by regions: Metro-South; Metro-North; Central Mass; Western Mass through the year.

What is emergency nursing? Nearly half of all medical care in the U.S. is delivered in E.D.s and nurses are on the frontlines of that care, addressing our physical and emotional needs and sending us back out into the world. “In Case of Emergency” is a documentary that follows emergency nurses and their patients in seven unique settings across the U.S, from urban to rural, shedding light on some of the biggest health care crises facing Americans today, and the opportunity that emergency nurses have to help break a sometimes-vicious cycle for patients under their care.
