Elsevier Collaborates with Emergency Nurses Association to Launch New, Expanded Version of Online Orientation

ENA: Emergency Nursing Orientation 2.0 includes a new knowledge inventory tool; more images, animations, video and interactivity; and a lesson notebook

Atlanta, GA, March 13, 2012 – Elsevier, a pioneer in providing eLearning solutions to more than 1,300 healthcare organizations through its Mosby’s eLearning brand, today announced a new, fully-revised version of the ENA: Emergency Nursing Orientation (ENO) online course.

ENO 2.0, authored by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) through an exclusive agreement with Mosby’s eLearning, helps provide a high-quality, consistent orientation and continuing education program that is founded on the most current evidence and best practices. This highly-successful course offers health care organizations an authoritative program to help ensure that patients cared for in the emergency department receive the best possible care.

“Our collaboration with Mosby’s eLearning over the years has yielded one of the best online emergency nursing orientation programs available, and this new version is even better,” said Susan McDaniel Hohenhaus, MA, RN, CEN, FAEN, Executive Director of Emergency Nurses Association and the ENA Foundation. “This updated course is designed to be flexible for new nurses in an orientation program as well as experienced nurses reviewing certain patient populations, conditions, or key topics to build knowledge or perhaps to study for their certification exam.”

ENO 2.0 includes many updated and new features, such as:

  1. 45 clinical lessons that offer continuing education credit
  2. Different pre-test and post-test from a test bank
  3. More color images and interactivity
  4. An online lesson notebook

“Working collaboratively with ENA, we are proud to be in a position to provide new and experienced emergency nurses with the latest, most comprehensive web-based educational content. We’ve learned over the years that the content also has value to nurses who work across the acute care setting, including critical care and medical-surgical units,” said Cindy Tryniszewski, Executive Director of Clinical eLearning. “We are particularly proud of the new Knowledge Inventory Tool, a 100-question test that covers all areas of emergency nursing. Each question relates back to one or more lessons in ENO 2.0 and automatically assigns lessons based on each nurse’s knowledge gaps.”

In addition to the many new features, these areas are among the new content included in ENO 2.0: 

  1. Environmental Emergencies
  2. Forensic Nursing
  3. Influenza
  4. Management of the Critical Care Patient in the ED
  5. Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Agents of Mass Destruction
