Deb is a seasoned Emergency Nurses with over 40 years experience who is dedicated and compassionate to her patients, peers and community. Deb has been a member with ENA for many years. Deb is an ER nurse and now working as clinical faculty who educates and mentors other emergency care providers. Her experience and wisdom is a strength that cannot be surpassed by others. I feel Deb is a role model and expert in emergency nursing and it would be an honor and a privilege to recognize her as the 2022 Colorado ENA lifetime achievement recipient.
Amy has been a role model for emergency nursing for as long as I have known her. She inspires me and other nurses to be involved in our profession, to join ENA, and to take care of all our patients in a professional and caring way. She also is always available to mentor and support any emergency nurse. She gives her phone number out; she encourages professional care to maintain mental health and self care. She has made me a better nurse and educator.
Pam is a one-of-a-kind nurse who has contributed to emergency nursing in so many ways. She personally helped me through many difficult patient situations. I would not have been the same nurse that I was without her. She always brought her knowledge along with her positive attitude in all the situations that we were in together. I cannot thank her enough!
I nominate Andrea Moore for the Colorado Emergency Nurse Lifetime Achievement Award. Andrea is an active member of the ENA.

She holds herself to the highest professional standards and advocates the same for those around her. She genuinely loves what she does, and it shows through her enthusiasm to educate and lead others. She has compassion and goes above and beyond to advocate for patients and their families. Andreas deserves all the recognition for being an exceptional nurse and someone that I, and many others, look up to as a truly compassionate leader. I nominate Andrea Moore for the Colorado Emergency Nurse Lifetime Achievement Award.
