For Nurses

Quick reference links for nurses and other direct-care health care providers. Please bear in mind that resources are selected from a nursing perspective (after all, this is a website for nurses); however the information is equally available and applicable to our colleagues in non-nursing professions. Specially selected links for our caregivers of clients/patients in home health, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, respite facilities, rehabilitation facilities, as well as doctor offices, hospitals and research facilities. We have taken great care in posting resources that will assist the spectrum of nursing: nursing students, QMAP, NA, CNA/MCNA, MA/CMA, LPN, RN, APN. Please do not hesitate to CONTACT US if you have information or suggestions not displayed on this page.

Please note that while we welcome all feedback, CCBN retains the right to post or not post information as we deem appropriate for public viewing. Information that cannot not be vetted, is still in the experimental stages, that we deem controversial or may cause public panic or harm will not be posted but may be presented on our Members Only portal for discussion or research, and/or may be placed on the agenda of one of our 3rd Saturday nursing forums open to nonmembers. Click HERE to be added to our 3rd Saturday nursing forums notification list. Thank You.
