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, And than you for your welcome. I am a 60 year young LPN going for my RN. I have been working as Traveling Nurse for over 10 years. All I can say is for me, Nursing is great. But if you are an LPN, DO NOT go to Casper College for your RN, you will not get it there. LPNs will not get the information they need to pass the classed.

    Thanks for the welcome! I think this site is great for individuals to explore the different areas of nursing and be able to ask questions and read articles on topics of interest. I also think it's nice to meet other nurses and healthcare professionals. I have been a Registered Nurse for 7 years and my background is in medical -surgical nursing, focusing mainly on surgical nursing. I have also tried telephonic educational nursing in disease management through an insurance company and when I wanted to have more one on one contact with clients, I went into home care. There are so many different paths that you can take in nursing and finding your niche is sometimes a lengthy process but exciting too. I look forward to exploring NursingLink's site!

    Ihave been a c.n.a. for about ten years and I am looking for a change. I have started classes at the University of Phoenix online. I am trying to go for my associates degree in healthcare administration. But now I am not sure if that is what I want to do looking at some of the jobs on this site I would like to work with people not be over the people. Is there some type of way that I could become an LPN online without having to go to school on campus becasue I have five children and it is not easy finding the time to attend school on ground and take care of the children. Especially when one of them is really sick.

    You're never too old to learn!
    I am a nurse educator in the midwest and my student population ranges from18 and straight from highschool to my eldest student who calculated he would be 61 when he graduated! Talk about diversity! Go for it. I find many students are spreading the cost of an education by going thru an LPN program (15 months or less) and then working for an employer who offers tuition reimbursement for their education to become an RN.

    So far, very good!! Thank you for your kind welcome. I am not a nurse, but I work closely with nurses, and have some training. I'm a Respiratory Therapist, or "Respiratory" as they call us. I'm looking to expand on my career and knowledge base; I hope to become a APN or PA. Jay
