The Nursing Site is a great resource for all who aspire to become nurses, practice as nurses now and/or aspire to grow their career path in the nursing profession. Nursing is a lifelong learning experience and ongoing recertification training process. I get my training for ACLS certification every 2 years to make sure I am updated with the new guidelines from the American Heart Association. This recertification training helps all Doctors and Nurses become better healthcare providers for their patients.

Nurses Make a Difference in Someone's Life Everyday!

Nursing is a noble profession. It is definitely one of the most challenging. Being a nurse can be quite draining both physically and emotionally, and yet it can be one of the most rewarding professions ever. Nursing has for the last 10 years been selected as the most ethical profession by the Gallup Poll.

Nurses make a difference in someone's life everyday, whether that person is a patient or caregiver, or your own personal friend or family member with a health care crisis or question.
Whether you are thinking about becoming a nurse, or are a seasoned old nurse, I hope this site offers you some insight and answers to your questions. My goal is to provide information, links and resources to assist you in your quest to make choices that make the best sense for you and your career as a nurse.

Thank you for all that you do (and will do) to educate and provide quality care to your patients. As health care changes and grows, the nurses role evolves and becomes more important than ever before. You are vital to this system.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will come back often, and tell your friends and colleagues about our site.

The Nursing Site and Nursing Site Blog were honored to be awarded Top Nursing Blog and Website accolades. Please check out these lists.
