It can be difficult to keep up with all the latest news about nursing and the nursing profession. Services like Google News are useful but searching there often produces irrelevant results (for example, articles about breast feeding) or articles that are only tangentially related to nurses and the nursing profession. However, I have found a couple excellent resources to track the latest nursing news:
- My Nurse News - this is a very recently launched nursing news aggregator. It has excerpts and links to nursing news articles, blog posts and press releases from many sources including national and state nurse associations.
- Topix Nursing News - News on Nursing continually updated from thousands of sources around the net.
I spend a lot of my spare time looking for the best and most interesting sites about nurses and the nursing profession. One new blog I recently found quite interesting is Notable Nurses which has profiles, biographies and photographs of remarkable and extraordinary nurses.
Are you looking for a nursing job in Houston, Texas or planning to move there? If so, you’ll want to check out some of these excellent resources I found.
Our nation’s capital is a great place to live and work as a nurse. One site I recently found, Nursing Jobs in Washington DC is an excellent resource for nurses seeking employment in or relocation to the District of Columbia. Nurses moving to the area should also make sure to connect with their colleagues at the District of Columbia Nurses Association.
I’m always looking for great nursing sites and directories. Lately, I’ve been quite impressed with a brand new nursing directory named Nursing Links. It has a nice, clean and simple design and it’s clear that its editors have taken great care to only include links to the best and most useful sites for nurses and those seeking more information about the nursing profession. They still have a lot of work to do so I encourage everyone to visit Nursing Links to both find new and interesting nursing sites and to suggest sites they may have missed.
California is both a great place to live and a great place to work as a nurse. If you are looking for a nursing job in California or you are a nurse planning on moving to California, you’ll want to check out the recently launched Nursing Jobs in California site. It’s chock full of excellent information about living and working as nurse in California. Another great resource is the America Nurses Association California site.
Real Nurse Photos collage
While looking for great new nursing sites, I’ve noticed that many of them used images with very familiar faces. The reason is that most of them use stock photos of models dressed as nurses and they source these images from a small group of stock photography providers. Nursing job board and nurse recruitment resource NursingJobs.us recently decided to change all that with its Real Nurse Photo Contest.
They have collected some of the photos at Real Nurse Photos. Another excellent resource focusing on images and stories of real nurses is The American Nurse Project.
