Getting Around NursingLink

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!

    Thank you kindly for the invite. This site is great for nurses today--a source of support in a nursing world that can unfortunately be lacking in that area. Looking forward to the experience!

    Hi.Thanks for the invite et the welcome message. I started my nursing career after my youngest son had surgery .The nurse that took care of him in Frankfurt (am mein), Germany, suggested I go into nursing . I came back to the states et did . My husband was in the military at the time. I worked as a certified nurses assistant in Texas et Missouri for about 11years then I furthered my education et became an L.P.N. in Missouri in 2003. If I could remember her name I would tell her thanks . It was one of the best suggestions I ever received that I followed.She was a nurse @ 97th General Hospital in Frankfurt, Germany, If you're there thanks!!:) I now work in a nursing home in Mo et Love my job so it's fun not work if you understand what I mean. Thanks again. suziemolpn

    Thank you so much for the welcome, Beth. This is an interesting web site and I have just begun to explore. CE are always in the back of my mind. I love the chance to learn a little more, a skill, a tidbit of knowledge, anything that will keep me up to date, help to make me a better nurse. I have been an LPN for 27 yrs. Lots of experience, lots of changes in the field, unfortuately never the time, opportunity or money to attain that coveted RN. The area of nursing that I have always loved has never been open to me as an LPN, but I have enjoyed the years I have spent in physicians offices and long term care. I look forward to participating in the discussion groups, learning what things are like in another area of nursing as well as other states or areas of my state. Thank you again for your gracious and informative welcome, now, I think I will explore some more. God Bless.

    Hi Beth,
    Thanks for welcoming me to your website. I'm most interested in net-working with other nurses; but the other options in the site look interesting, as well. I have been an RN for many years and have settled into the nitch of Legal Nurse Consulting for the past 10 years or so. I would love to know whether there are any other Legal Nurse Consultants who belong to NursingLink. Best wishes to everyone else on NursingLink who are in the healthcare field. I would welcome talking with any NurseLink members who might have questions about the field of nursing in the 21st century. God bless ya!

    Thank you for keeping me on your list, I do not mean to be a procastinator. Between my full time
    job and part time business I do not have a lot of computer time. In the simplest ways, please tell
    how to get started. A phone number and a schedule of classes might get me moving on this. I've
    taken Math, English, and Psycology. Don't want to stop now. Thank you, Dave

    Thank you for the information that can be read and discussed through nursing link. I have some ideas for a discussion forum already forming in my mind! I look forward to communicating with other nurses about their likes/dislikes, ideas and experience!
