About the Host

The Host

Kevin McFarlane, MSN, RN, CEN, TCRN, NE-BC, NPD-BC, FAEN

Kevin McFarlane is a triple threat: he's an experienced emergency nurse, a dedicated nurse educator, and a nurse leader.  He puts all of these skills to use as one of the hosts of the wildly popular "Art of Emergency Nursing" podcast, where he and his colleagues dish out their best advice, insights, and wisdom for the emergency nursing community.

With over 25 years of experience working in various emergency departments, including the tough-as-nails Level I Trauma Centers and Pediatric Emergency Departments, Kevin knows his stuff.  He is an internationally recognized speaker. Rumor has it he even holds national titles in alligator wrestling and sandcastle building, but that might be classified information.

In short, Kevin McFarlane is the real deal when it comes to emergency nursing. He's got the experience, knowledge, and wit to help fellow nurses up their game and provide the best possible care to their patients. And hey, if you need tips on building a mean sandcastle or wrestling a gator, he might just have some insights on that too.

At present, Kevin works as an Administrator On Duty for a small community hospital in Texas.  He also works part-time as an educator training new grad nurses for a  multi-hospital system in Texas. As an active member of both the national and local Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) and the Association for Nursing Professional Development (ANPD), he is committed to promoting excellence in emergency nursing practice and education.


Kevin also routinely shares his expertise and insights at EMS and nursing conferences both in the United States and internationally.
