 Editor Karen Sue HoytDear Colleagues,

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays with family and friends and had a time to reflect on what last year meant for you personally. It was also a time to celebrate accomplishments at an organizational level. As the official journal of the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP), the Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal also enjoyed many successes. Readership is up, and our journal has taken off. AENJ is in 68 countries across 4,385 sites with access. While we celebrate the many successes of advanced practice registered nurses worldwide, there is still much work to be done and many issues to tackle at AAENP as well.

Your vehicle to carry those meaningful messages forward is AENJ. So, keep writing! We need your manuscripts. We also need more reviewers. We also need you to clinically keep abreast of the "hot topics" in emergency care. So, if you are thinking about emergency nurse practitioner certification (ENP-C) or just looking for some excellent continuing education this winter, here is a conference that may interest you-the Southeast Regional ConferenceThe theme for this year's conference is Advocating for Vulnerable Populations in Emergency Care. This two-day event will include a pre-conference on Friday, February 22nd, with break out rotations and an additional full day conference on Saturday, February 23, 2019. See

Happy 2019!
