Five ways RNpedia.com is helpful to nursing students
Anyone who has ever been inside a big box retailer understands the convenience of one-stop shopping. Within twenty minutes you can pick up cat food, a space heater and a smart phone. Wouldn’t it be great if the same sort of convenient, one-stop location existed for nursing students? Well, it does!
RNpedia.com is a website stocked with everything from world news to helpful study aids and information that will keep you healthy. Here are five sections of this website that you’ll put to good use as you study for a bachelor of science in nursing degree.
- In the Tools & Apps section you’ll find flashcards reviewing the common signs and symptoms of diseases.
- In the Nursing Notes section, there’s an alphabetical list of over 150 medications, stating the brand name, generic name, pronunciation, drug class, therapeutic actions, indications, contraindications and cautions, dosages and much more.
- On the homepage, you can read articles on everything from the crucial qualities of a good nurse, to ways to be fit and healthy, to ways to tackle stress.
- In the videos section, you’ll find over 150 videos showing how to hang main line IV and tubing, perform tracheostomy suctioning, and assess a newborn’s reflexes plus much more.
- And, when it comes time to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) you can use these practice questions to prepare for the exam.
In addition, for those days when you need a little encouragement, RNpedia.com even has inspirational quotes, like this one from Dag Hammarskjold:
“Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon.”
