Beverly Hart, professor of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing and RN-BSN Coordinator at Eastern Kentucky University, has been appointed to an Emergency Nurses Association committee that will examine national issues related to emergency nursing practices, emergency care and matters of the Association.

She will serve a one-year term on the ENA’s Emergency Department Psychiatric Care Committee.

Hart, who holds a bachelor's degree in nursing from EKU, a master's degree in nursing education from Bellarmine University and a doctoral degree in nursing from the University of Cincinnati, is also a psychiatric nurse practitioner. She obtained that post-master’s degree from EKU.

Originally aimed at teaching and networking when it was formed in 1968 as the Emergency Room Nurses Organization, ENA has evolved into an authority, advocate, lobbyist, and voice for emergency nursing, advocating for patient safety and excellence in emergency nursing practice. The ENA has more than 30,000 members and continues to grow, with members representing more than 32 countries around the world.
