Student nursing resources are diverse and include everything from books, study guides and software, to forums and job offerings. A large number of resources can be found right on campus where students attend nursing classes. For instance, student groups often address nursing-related issues through meetings, newsletters, and discussion panels with guest speakers.

Job listings are commonly listed in designated campus spaces, and sometimes student nursing programs themselves help place students with jobs. Books and study aids, of course, can always be found in the university bookstore. However, school bookstores have limited space and budgets. They also may not offer the best prices for cash-strapped students. Thus, for the resources that can't be found in the campus bookstore, many nursing students go online. The best study aids will be those that can condense the unwieldy nursing textbooks--some are over 2,000 pages--into 20 to 30 pages or less. Nursing students who have taken advantage of these types of study guide have been overwhelmingly positive about their usefulness.

Educational Student Nursing Resources

Online student resources offer nursing students the chance to round out their on-campus experience in a convenient and efficient way, from their own PCs. Another advantage to online resources is that they are worldwide in scope, unconstrained by regional limitations. In other words, students can get a more complete idea of what's going on in the wide world of nursing, not just through the lens of their degree program in Anywhere, USA.

The fact that online nursing resources can originate from any part of the world is significant, for this opens up a universe of information and opportunities. Some resources are even focused on seeing the world, as in the case of traveling nurse programs. By going online, nursing students can get international perspectives on nursing issues to supplement their educational process. They can also stay connected with the underlying pulse of the nursing profession, nurturing an ongoing awareness of the changes and discoveries that are constantly happening in the world of nursing.
