Hands-on learning and online courses from Chamberlain University are designed to provide pre-licensure nurses with a foundation in emergency nursing.  

On March 13, the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) announced its collaboration with Adtalem Global Education to launch an “Introduction to Emergency Nursing” course as part of Chamberlain University’s Practice Ready. Specialty Focused.™ initiative.

Beginning in May 2024, Chamberlain students in the pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) can begin taking online courses and then a hands-on clinical practicum designed to provide a strong foundation in an emergency nursing career.

“Thanks to innovative partners like ENA, we can properly train the next generation of emergency nurses and work toward combatting the nursing shortage many health care systems face,” shared Dr. Karen Cox, president of Chamberlain University, in the ENA’s release.

According to a 2021 American Nurses Foundation report, 35% of emergency department nurses intended to leave their position within six months of the survey, the highest among specialties surveyed and nearly 14% more than the turnover rate for all registered nurses participating in the survey.

Emergency rooms and other specialty fields desperately need nurses. Read more about how Adtalem’s hands-on partnerships are providing a solution.
