Getting Around NursingLink

NursingLink

So now that you’ve found your way to NursingLink, what exactly is there do? There are many ways to be interactive and if you need some ideas, this guide will show you exactly what there is to do in each section.

Careers

You can search our job listings to see who is hiring nurses. We’ve partnered with Monster.com to bring you the most healthcare job listings on the web. Find out how to use NursingLink to find a job. You can also add your resume to the career network, and employers will come to you. There are also some great articles about building resumes and interviewing techniques.

Also, if you’re looking to become a nurse, this page is a great place to start.

If you’d like advice from other nurses, you can post a question in the discussion section. Just click on the blue bar that says “START A NEW TOPIC.”

Education

Are you thinking about starting a career in nursing? “10 Steps to Becoming a Nurse” is our essential guide to get you started. Already in nursing school? Drop by our Student Lounge discussion area and leave a message. It’s a great way to connect with other nursing students.

Play: Videos, Games, & Quizzes

Cut to the good stuff. From humor to major government broadcasts, our videos section is informative and entertaining. In fact, you can upload your own videos to our collection, and give input into which videos should be featured on our home page. Our Nursing Trivia Game and Quizzes are designed to challenge you, and to help you become more career-savvy.

News

You can rate every news article that you read. Go to the box that says “Rate.” Hover over the amount of stars that you would like to give that article and click. Your rating will be automatically registered. In fact, you can start by rating this very article that you are reading! That way I will know if it has been helpful.

You can also leave a comment after any article that you read on NusingLink. Leaving a comment is a good way to start a conversation about the article.

You can submit your own news story by writing it yourself, or by providing a link to an article that you found interesting. If enough people read and rate your article it may just find its way to the front page on the “What’s Hot” list.

Training

Search our selection of training articles and CE courses. You can read the course and then go directly to our CE partner to obtain the credits. Do you have your own training or teaching materials that you would like to share? You can submit them here.

Product Reviews

You can review any of the products that you see, and you can even add products to your profile. Underneath each product there is a button that says “Add to Things I can’t Live Without.” By clicking on that button, the product becomes added to your profile. You can see from my profile that I can’t live without my Nurse Betty book purse and my Nelcor forehead pulse oximeter.

Do you have a product that you want to tell the NursingLink community about? Maybe a brand of scrubs that you love, or a medical device that you use on the job and find it to be an essential tool? You can also add your own products for review. Just click on “write a review” in the blue navigational bar and follow the steps.

Discussions

This is where much of the action on NursingLink occurs! You can start a discussion on any topic that you can think of. For instance, if you are a student, maybe you have questions about how other students are coping with their clinicals. Perhaps you are a nurse with an advanced degree and would like to find similar nurses to network with. Just start a discussion thread and people will be able to respond to your topic or question.

Community

You can search for other members here. This is also where you update your profile, and check your NursingLink mail.

If you need more ideas, or still have questions about how you can participate, please send a private message to me (Katie) and I will set you in the right direction.

Lastly, don’t forget to invite all of your friends and colleagues to NursingLink!

    Hi! I am happy because finally I feel connected! Thanks for the welcome. I appreciate it so much. I am an RN here in the Philippines but as of now, I'm not practicing my profession. I'm teaching instead in a small school offering Nursing Assistant Courses. I had worked as a Staff Nurse in King Fahad Specialist Hospital in Buraidah, Al Qassim Region of Saudi Arabia for 2 years and honestly I MISS the work. For me, Nursing is a worthwhile profession. I LOVE nursing. I want to learn more, so that I can become better. I'm glad there is NURSING LINK! Thank You to that individual who started this and to all of the staff. More power!!!

    Hello. I have been an adult critical care nurse for 10 years now and would really like to move to the NICU. I haven't really had the opportunity until now since we have moved to the Atlanta area. Im desperately in need of a new challenge and have been wanting to work with babies for years. Im hoping I may find an opportunity here.

    This is wonderful! I was just about to give up nursing entirely and exlore other ways to help people. Hopefully this site can help me find a job in my area, all the open jobs are for RNs so I am getting ready to go back to school for that since being an LPN hasn't gotten me a job, maybe if I go back to school and get my RN i will be able to get a job.

    Several of the articles I tried to link to either are no longer available or don't exist. This was very frustrating. I would have enjoyed this article more and gotten more out of it if I could have followed the links.

    Thanks for the welcome. I am new to the world of nursing. I was recently certified as a Nursing Assistant. It is very hard to get started out there and I am looking for advice and suggestions. My ultimate goal is to become an Oncology Nurse. My first RN job though I would love to work in ER Nursing. So I am happy to be in this community.

    Thanks. I am interested in reading what other nurses in other places think - especially about the upcoming election and healthcare reform. Sometimes just talking to other nurses makes being a nurse allright.
