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 for welcoming me into the Nursing Link. Right now I'm applying for Vocational Nursing and later to do the transition to RN. It's very competitive, but I'm not giving up. I can't believe how interesting this field compared from what I used to have. This website for sure will inspired me towards this new career of mine.

    Hello, and thank you so much for your welcome email! I am looking forward to learning more about the site and appreciate all of the information and resources you offer. As a RN with a Bachelor's in another field and over 15 years of experience that is stable, yet progressive & varied, I am especially interested in building upon some of those areas I have most enjoyed in developing my resume and entering a new career phase. Although nursing is a field offering seemingly endless opportunities, targeting the position suitable to talent, personality and orientation is imperative and I feel confident that Nursing Link offers multiple areas of assistance toward finding that necessary fit. Thank you!

    Thank you for the welcome. I've been considering a career in nursing for some time now, but I wasn't sure what area or where to start. I have a brother that was brain injured in an accident and I've been helping to care for him off and on about 14 years now. I also worked for an oxygen company for 5 years. I guess I need to get off my ____ and get my degree. Thanks I believe this site will me alot.

    Thank you for the welcome, I am sure I will have many questions along the way. My nursing education was cut short 11 years ago by family and financial obligations, and now my child is in college and I am looking forward to finishing what I started. Thanks

    I would like to find a way to go to nursing school to earn a degree in Nursing. I am not able to take out student loans. I would be interested in signing a two or three year agreement with an employer to help me get my nursing degree. Any one who can help me do this? I would be so happy. I love taking care and helping people. Thanks. Georgette Leifling

    Hello
    newbie here, but i wanted to say that I'm excited about joining and getting a lot information and knowledge from the site.my life long dream is to be a nurse. I've had a few set backs in my life and now the time is right for me to fulfill my dream. and i will not stop till i have that degree in hand, been in the nursing field off and on for over 20 yrs. i know that my love of caring for people is engraved in my heart and soul and becoming a nurse at my age only tells me that it's not age that counts it is what's in your heart and your passion within yourself and that gives me the strength to fulfill and care for people as long as the lord will allow me to.
    i look forward to knowing who ever i come in contact with on this site in this 2008 year.
    may we all live to dream
    and dream to succeed
