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!

    Hi I am new here, looking forward to making new friends and gaining knowledge from the site. My goal is to become a Practical Nurse and later becoming a Register Nurse. Right now I'm a Nurse Assistant trying to get back into school to finish where I left off. I was attending school in Findlay, OH majoring in Practical Nursing.

    Hello! Thanks for the invitation to join. It looks like this site will be very helpful. Currently, I am a CMA (AAMA) and a CNA. I've finished all of my prerequisites for Nursing school, and I'm looking foreward to finding a nice fat acceptance letter in my mailbox this March or April. Keep your fingers crossed! In the meantime, I'm taking two math classes so I'll be ready for Pharmacology and I'm taking the American Heart Association's BLS instructor course. I look foreward to getting to know as many of you as possible-there's always strength in numbers!
