Emergency Department Nurses Association (EDNA) of Manitoba

nsena_logo-trimEmergency nurses in Manitoba face unique challenges based on the geographical vastness of our province. From the rural emergency departments (ED’s) of the prairies, to the city ED’s, to the remoteness of the northern ED’s and nursing stations; although there are variations to our practice areas, there is a common thread amongst Manitoba emergency nurses.

EDNA of Manitoba is a provincial organization affiliated with the National Emergency Nurses Association (NENA).

Formed 30 years ago, EDNA of Manitoba serves as a connection for emergency nurses across the province, and is a part of NENA’s national network of emergency nurses and emergency department partners.

When you join you are both a member of NENA and EDNA.

Click HERE, or the JOIN option in the NENA navigation menu.

Remember that your membership is not complete until you submit your membership fee through PayPal. You will receive an e-mail receipt confirming acceptance.

The advantages of belonging to EDNA of Manitoba and NENA are many:

  • Reduced registration fees to educational sessions such as the Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC), the Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC) and the Course in Advanced Trauma Nursing (CATN)
  • Reduced registration fees to both EDNA sponsored educational events offered periodically as well as NENA national conferences offered every spring across Canada
  • A subscription to the Canadian Journal of Emergency Nursing (CJEN), NENA’s official publication, published semiannually
  • Access to the NENA website with information regarding emergency nursing practice issues including standards and position statements
  • An opportunity to network with other Emergency nurses in the province and across the country
  • Educational bursaries, both from EDNA and NENA, to qualifying members


NENA and EDNA hold annual conferences and Annual General Meetings. Registration costs for these are reduced for members.

The 2014 NENA Conference this year is in Toronto April 27-29 and is a Pan-American conference. The 2015 NENA Conference will be hosted in Edmonton in May 2015.

These annual conferences are excellent and garner national and international speakers and presentations.
