Emergency Specialty Practice Group

Engage, Learn, Network and Progress Practice in Emergency

American Association of Nurse Practitioners - Emergency SPG

Emergency NPs need to be ready for anything, and exchanging your experiences in collaboration with other emergency NPs is a great way to expand that readiness. The Emergency Specialty Practice Group (SPG) offers a unique opportunity to interactively collaborate with colleagues who share interest or clinical expertise in emergency care. As an SPG member you’ll have access to a cutting-edge, online forum where you can engage in discussions, document sharing and knowledge exchange with fellow NPs. Come learn, share and help progress the development of theory and practice in emergency care.

A Message From the Emergency SPG Co-chairs

Paula Tucker SPG ChairPaula Tucker, DNP, FNP-BC, ENP-C

I am honored to co-chair the Emergency SPG! I believe NPs working in emergency care are unique to health care and provide a wealth of knowledge and skills to patients who present to the emergency department. We hope this SPG will provide a space for you to share, connect and learn more about this amazing health care setting.

Dian Dowling Evans SPG ChairDian Dowling Evans, PhD, FNP-BC, ENP-C, FAANP

I am thrilled to be co-chairing the Emergency SPG and welcome all of you to actively participate with us as we advance our specialty. I am hoping that you will use the SPG to share information about your practice and let us know if there are ways that we can assist you, whether it is in finding employment in emergency department settings, working with your state boards or educating employers about NP education and practice. We know that the number of NPs practicing in emergency care is increasing. As we continue to fill critical workforce gaps in emergency care, it is critical that we share our experiences and work together. The SPG is your forum. I look forward to lively interaction with all of you.
