EM Day of Service

Join ENPs and EM colleagues from Across the Country for the Annual EM Day of Service!

The American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners has partnered with the Emergency Medicine Resident Association (EMRA) and other organizations to serve our communities during EM Day of Service. The EM Day of Service occurs during the month of September annually as a way to give back to our communities. For 2018, we are focusing on our geriatric communities and will be teaming up with local nursing homes to create a local geriatric involvement activity. AAENP will be enriching the lives of the geriatric population across the nation and providing a simple, yet effective method of service to our elderly communities.

The EM Day of Service is a specialty-driven event where emergency care providers identify community needs & volunteer to address those needs. Join AAENP in this emergency medicine collaboration with colleagues from the following organizations:

  • American Academy of Emergency Medicine Association
  • Emergency Department Practice Management
