Emergency Nurses Week

ENWeek Planning Guide


Since 1989, the Emergency Nurses Association has recognized the second Wednesday in October as Emergency Nurses DayTM. In 2001, ENA expanded the celebration to a full week to shine a bigger light on emergency nurses.

Each year, the association celebrates and honors the incredible work of emergency nurses around the world by highlighting members, offering giveaways, providing discounts, engaging with state- and federal-level legislators for recognition, hosting the annual EN Week 5k to raise funds for the ENA Foundation and much more.

This year, Emergency Nurses WeekTM is Oct. 8-14 and Emergency Nurses DayTM is Oct. 11.


Emergency Nurses Week 5k

The EN Week 5k virtually brings together people from around the world to celebrate emergency nurses while also benefiting the ENA Foundation. During this week, participants run, walk or push 5k on their favorite local route and post their results.
