Pioneer Valley Chapter


The Pioneer Valley chapter of the ENA is very active and focused on educating and empowering ER nurses. We meet the fourth Tuesday of each month and spend about half of our time on education and half on business and planning. We host a variety of speakers on topics such as Disaster Management, Left Ventricular Assist Devices, SANE education and many others. You do not have to be an ENA member to come visit one of our meetings. If you choose to become involved in our chapter, you will be a part of a group of professional emergency nurses who are committed to making emergency nursing better and improving the care we provide to our patients. We have a raffle each month and provide light refreshments. We meet at 360 Whitney Ave in Holyoke from 5p-7p. Below is our schedule for the upcoming year. We hope to see you join us!
