​Editor's Remarks - January 2022 Editor Karen Sue Hoyt


As we begin the new year, I would like to remind you that we are always looking for authors! If you are interested in publishing with AENJ, here are some tips to consider before you send in your manuscript:
  • Send a query to me, the Editor-in-Chief
  • Review the Information for Authors section at the AENJ website.
  • Use APA 7th edition format..
  • Note that there is no firm page limit, but, in general, manuscripts should not exceed 20 pages (Tables and Figures not included).
  • Review any articles on the same topic that we may have published in AENJ over the past few years.
  • Be certain that you are writing for our audience of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) by discussing implications for APRNs in your paper.


The American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) and the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) are pleased to announce the 2021 Emergency Nurse Practitioner (ENP) Competencies

This document represents the integration of previously published competencies from both the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP, 2018) and the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA, 2019). This integration was led by members of the Emergency Nurse Practitioner Competencies Work Group which included representatives from AAENP and ENA, including some individuals who worked on the most recent sets of competencies from each organization.

The work group utilized an external validation process for review and revision of these competencies which are aligned with other national initiatives and documents that shape and define Nurse Practitioner curricular development. In addition to supporting Emergency Nurse Practitioner academic preparation, the resulting unified set of ENP competencies support current regulatory frameworks, credentialing and insurer challenges.

Happy New Year,
