Editor, Karen Sue Hoyt

As the Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal (AENJ) is the official journal of the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP), AAENP and AENJ would like to invite you to attend the first joint educational conference of the Tennessee College of Emergency Physicians (TCEP) and the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) Southeastern Region.

The conference is slated for March 4th through March 6th, 2018 in Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Chattanooga Hotel. On Sunday, March 4th there are six sessions that will provide knowledgeable speakers who will provide some timely interactive, hands-on procedures for advanced practice providers. The remaining two days of the conference will offer several other exciting educational opportunities.

If you decide to attend this joint conference (and you will not be disappointed!), please pick up a complimentary copy of AENJ, or take a flyer which describes more information about "hot topics" of interest in emergency care and how to get your manuscript published in AENJ.  If you are a speaker at the conference, please consider writing up your presentation and submitting it to AENJ. For further information about sending in your manuscript at http://edmgr.ovid.com/aenj/accounts/ifauth.htm. We would also like see new authors send in their manuscripts about emergency care as well. If you are already a member of AAENP, you already receive AENJ and we thank you for your support. If you are not a member of AAENP, please consider joining AAENP at http://aaenp-natl.org/join.php.

Hope to see you at the conference!

In "A Cluster of Cases", we like to point out websites that are Exemplars of Excellence in Emergency Care, and a mini-anthology of postings from these reputable emergency care sources of exceptional value.


Here is a current article from Pediatric EM Morsels; from this article, alone, are links to many other topics of pediatric problems, and typically "adult: problems less-commonly found in kids. Yet, there is much more to be found, CME credit, and a PedEMMorsels App! Not to be missed!
