Advanced Emergency Nurses Network (AENN)

On this page:

The evolution of AENN

The Emergency Nurses Core Curriculum for Advanced Nursing Practice (ENCAP) was developed in 2010, then moved under the umbrella of the College of Emergency Nurses in 2014.

The newly named Advanced Emergency Nurse Network provides educational support and collaborative opportunities.

AENN Training Days

The AENN training days will be held three times a year. One day will be at the annual CENNZ conference.

All Clinical Nurse Specialists and Nurse Practitioners working in New Zealand, as well as other nurses who have a special interest in emergency nursing are welcome to attend.

The training days provide ongoing education and learning in a supportive environment. It is also a great opportunity for networking and share experiences to develop services nationally.

The content of the day is managed by the hosting region including:

  • presentation of literature reviews & critique of research articles

  • presentation of case studies – highlighting clinical challenges

  • formal sessions by clinical experts which combine a theoretical and practical component

  • review / introduction of clinical guidelines
