Alexander Street Announces Partnership With MEDCOM-TRAINEX

June 1, 2011

JUNE 1, 2011 (ALEXANDRIA, VA) -- Electronic publisher Alexander Street Press today announced plans to publish Nursing Education in Video, an online collection of streaming video for the training and professional development of nurses and nursing assistants.

The result of a partnership with MEDCOM-TRAINEX, one of the largest providers of nursing education video programs worldwide, the collection will give nursing faculty and students at subscribing institutions 24/7 online access to MEDCOM’s highly regarded library of full-length training programs together with the advanced functionality typical of Alexander Street’s video collections. Already widely used in nursing courses and hospitals, MEDCOM videos have won more than 50 major awards for excellence, including the prestigious Emmy award.

Said Greg Urquhart, vice president of business development at Alexander Street Press, “To create a nursing education collection, our goal was to identify the very best video content in that space, and MEDCOM was an obvious choice. Their reputation is second to none, and their DVDs are already widely used in nursing courses.”

Said MEDCOM vice-president, Michael K. Zoradi, “This collection will make it much easier for nursing faculty and students to access and use this content, and the Alexander Street video platform offers a lot of extra features—a single place to cross-search all videos, scrolling transcripts, mobile access—these features offer a lot of advantages for faculty and students, and we’re very pleased about the partnership.”

As a single, cross-searchable collection, Nursing Education in Video will cover the fundamentals of nurse training as well as advanced topics, including: Anatomy and Physiology, Basic Clinical Skills, Cardiology, Communications, Gerontology, Infection Control, Legal Aspects of Nursing, Long Term Care, Medication Administration, Nursing Assistant Skills, Obstetrical Nursing, Pediatrics, Surgical Care, and Wound Care.

Alexander Street plans to launch Nursing Education in Video as an online streaming collection later this year. At launch, the collection will include more than 300 titles, and it will grow by approximately 30 new videos each year.
