Rob Kramer, MPA
Director of Government Relations
Emergency Nurses Association
Washington, DC

Rob Kramer is the Director of Government Relations for the Emergency Nurses Association, where he works to develop and execute ENA’s government relations strategies on the state and federal levels. Recently, he helped lead an advocacy campaign that resulted in the enactment of one of the ENA’s top legislative priorities and was recognized earlier this year by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) with its Gold Circle Award for Advocacy for 2017. At ENA, Rob focuses on issues related to workplace violence, trauma care and the opioid epidemic. Prior to joining the Emergency Nurses Association, Rob held positions with a large patient advocacy organization as well as on Capitol Hill, where he served as a health care aide for a member of the House of Representatives.

Rob holds a bachelor’s degree in Criminology and a Master’s degree in Public Administration, both from Auburn University. When he’s not working to advocate for policies to help emergency nurses or their patients, Rob can be found cycling around the D.C. area, kayaking on the Potomac, cheering on the Washington Capitals, or planning the next adventure with his wife, son and their dog, Barley.
