Congratulations to Christine Szafran who was awarded an ENA scholarship to support her efforts as she embarks on the ENA Cultural Exchange trip in a few short weeks.
Christine is a Bachelor prepared ED nurse who is passionate about her career. Christine began her career in the Nurse Residency program at the University of Rochester’s level I trauma center three years ago and continues to employ there today serving as preceptor for new nurses. Christine is working on her career advancement and preparing to take the CEN exam in the future.
On the ENA Cultural Exchange trip Christine will be visiting Switzerland and the Netherlands, where she will meet with Emergency Nursing leadership and hospital officials to learn about their ED nursing care, workflows, and best practices. She hopes to gain insights and ideas to bring back to her workplace and local ENA chapter.
