Welcome to NENA MB

National Emergency Nurses Association of Manitoba (NENA MB)

Emergency nurses across Manitoba have the opportunity to experience the geographical vastness of our province. Whether working in urban center ED’s with tertiary care capabilities, rural emergency departments (ED’s) servicing smaller communities, or the remoteness of the North with its ED’s and nursing stations; there are many opportunities for nurses to practice in varied settings across this province.

NENA MB is a provincial organization affiliated with the National Emergency Nurses Association (NENA).

Founded in 1981 as the Emergency Department Nurses Association (EDNA) of Manitoba, this special interest group offered courses, hosted conferences and other events.

In 2019, EDNA formally became NENA MB along with an updated logo, voted in by the members.

NENA MB became incorporated as an organization in 2020, continuing with its focus on education for emergency nurses through course offerings and hosting events for current practice themes.

NENA MB 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.
