 Editor Karen Sue Hoyt

Dear Colleagues,

The Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal (AENJ) Editorial Board met in San Diego, California last month. We have a new international member, Wim Breeman from Rotterdam, Netherlands. Welcome to the AENJ Board!

The American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) Western Regional Meet and Greet also took place in conjunction with the American College of Emergency Physicians 50th Anniversary. We met several new folks who are reading and contributing to AENJ. We also have some new reviewers for AENJ as well. Thank you for your support of our journal.

The AAENP membership continues to increase and we hope to be at 1,000 members by next year which means that AENJ members will be served individually by a subscription to their own journal, rather than mere institutional access, if available.

The AAENP will again hold its Southeastern Regional Conference, February 22-23, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee. This conference will focus on vulnerable populations. AAENP will again provide procedural and pharmacy continuing education units for emergency nurse practitioners.

Abstract submissions are open until November 30, 2019. Presenters accepted will receive discounted registration. Think about publishing that abstract in AENJ!

Happy Fall,
K. Sue Hoyt
