President Welcome Letter

Hello fellow ED nurses!

I would like to take a moment of your time and introduce myself. My name is Debbie Ferraro and I am the Palm Beach County ENA President for 2018-2019. I have been a member of the ENA since its early years when it was known as EDNA! I practiced ED nursing for 31 years, most of that time was in a busy ED in Philadelphia. I’ve worked in the ED’s at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Martin Health System in the Treasure Coast after my move to Florida. I have been a CEN since 1981.

Our chapter is hoping to have more participation with our membership. Please feel free to reach out to me with any ideas, suggestions you may have that will help improve our Chapter. I have begun to visit our local ED’s at staff meetings to help encourage membership and participation. We will be holding our meetings at rotating locations to make it easier for members to attend.

Please come to our next meeting being held at Boca Regional ( Dawson Theatre) on 03/21/18 at 1900. Our presenter is speaking about venomous snake bites and Crofab. Come and meet your colleagues. Share stories, laughs, good food and a great venue for education as well.

Debbie Ferraro BSN, RN, CEN
