Editors' Remarks


Dear Colleague,

Welcome to the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners!


The newly formed American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) has adopted the AENJ as their official journal. Both AENJ and the AAENP seek to promote high quality, evidence-based care so this relationship is a natural fit. There are many opportunities for collaboration and mutual gain which will translate into improved resources for ENPs and improved care for patients.

Members will have free on-line access to AENJ as a benefit of membership and may also subscribe the print journal at a deeply discounted rate.  AAENP Founder, Elda Ramirez, is a long-time AENJ board member and AENJ Editor, K. Sue Hoyt, is now an AAENP board member so our collegial relationship is well established.

If you're an ENP who doesn't already belong to AAENP, you can see what you're missing at www.aaenp-natl.org.

Sue and Jean

Sympathy and Condolences


Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal and AENOnline express their sincere sympathy and condolences to all the victims and families of those who died or wounded or adversely affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada.


AENJournal and AENOnline also commend the bravery, gallantry, and noble assistance of those who tried to help others escape, to bind their wounds, transport the casualties, or render aid, whether instant bystander volunteers or emergency services, or hospital staff. Your efforts surely lessened the outcome and exemplify the best of human motives.
