Title:
A Survey of Emergency Nurse Practitioner Programs in the United States
Abstract:
A Survey of Emergency Nurse Practitioner Programs in the United States
Conference Sponsor:Emergency Nurses Association
Conference Year:2008
Author:Davis-Moon, Linda, CRNP, MSN, APRN, BC
P.I. Institution Name:Thomas Jefferson University, Department of Emergency Medicine
Title:Nurse Practitioner
Director of Special Projects and Strategic Planning
Contact Address:1020 Sansom Street, Thompson 239, Philadelphia, PA, 19107-, USA
Co-Authors:Andrew Storer, CRNP, MSN, NP-C
Purpose: To determine the number of nurse practitioner programs with a focus on educating emergency nurse practitioners. According to the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners only 1.9% of all Nurse Practitioners work in Emergency Departments. No specialty certification exists for Emergency Nurse Practitioners (ENP). This is a significantly low percentage of Nurse Practitioners (NP) in the United States entering into the field of advanced practice emergency nursing. No existing national certification exam in place and no national Emergency NP organization is in existence

Design: In December of 2006 an on-line review of nurse practitioner programs in the United States was conducted using Medline, OVID, and Pub med databases. Post- Masters certificate programs were included in the search.

Setting: This search was conducted at an urban university medical center located in the northeastern United States.

Participants: Nurse Practitioners with a specialty focus in emergency nursing conducted the search.

Methods: An online search with the assistance of the American College of Nurse Practitioners was conducted. The search utilized several inclusive databases.

Results: At the time of the survey, 378 Nurse Practitioner education programs existed nationally with only 5 of these programs offering ENP master's educational training (1.3%). Four ENP post-masters? certificate programs exist (>1%) for a combined total of 9 educational training programs nationally. There are no ENP masters or post certificate programs in the state of Pennsylvania nor in the northeast United States.

Recommendations: There are not enough ENP training programs existing in the United States (1.3%). There are not enough trained ENP practicing nationally in our EDs. More ENPs need to be trained to meet the Emergency Medicine workforce demands. Federal and state funding could to be earmarked for development of more ENP programs especially in the northeast United States. A national ENP certification examination needs to be developed.
