Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal named official journal of American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners

Established journal becomes new voice of evidence-based care for emergency nurse practitioners.

Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal today announced that AENJ will be the official journal of the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP)—a recently formed organization dedicated to evidence-based practice in advanced practice emergency nursing. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.

“The AAENP reflects emergency nurse practitioners’ commitment to developing evidence-based practice in the provision of interdisciplinary care for emergency department patients, as well as for the educational and clinical preparation of ENPs,” comments AENJ Co-Editor K. Sue Hoyt, PhD, RN, FNP-BC, CEN, FAEN, FAANP, FAAN. “It's a natural fit with our journal's long-standing focus on standards for high-quality care for those working in the ED setting,” adds Jean A. Proehl, RN, MN, CEN, CPEN, FAEN, Co-Editor of AENJ.

“We're honored and excited to become affiliated with this top-quality, prestigious journal, recognized as among the leading journals of advanced emergency nursing practice,” comments Elda G. Ramirez, PhD, RN, FNP-C, FAANP, President and Founder of AAENP. “We're confident that this partnership will help achieve our mutual goals of establishing the scope of practice, training programs, and standards of care to support ENPs in providing high-quality nursing practice, in this country and around the world.”

Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal is a long-established, widely read and respected publication of advanced practice in emergency nursing. Each issue presents peer-reviewed research, features and a research-to-practice column that are directly relevant to advanced practice nursing in the emergency department.

Members of AAENP will receive each quarterly issue of Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal as a benefit of membership. Members and subscribers can also access the full contents of each issue on the AENJ iPad app.
