Nursing Video Resources Expanding Fast at Alexander Street

December 19, 2013

(ALEXANDRIA, VA) – Alexander Street Press introduces two online video collections—Nursing Assistant Education in Video and Nursing Assessment in Videodesigned exclusively for nursing professionals in training.

Nursing Assistant Education in Video includes 37 full-length training videos specifically geared toward nursing assistants on topics from infection control and oral care to communication and working with elders. Nursing Assessment in Video showcases the skills and techniques all nurses need to know to make an accurate patient assessment. Because all titles in the collections were created since 2009 and 2012 respectively, these databases ensure professionals will have access to the most up-to-date information available.
These sister collections follow on the heels of Alexander Street Press’s inaugural nursing collection Nursing Education in Video, which Choice named an Outstanding Academic Title in 2012. All three collections feature content from Medcom-Trainex, a leading provider of nursing education videos worldwide, so users can rely on content to be accurate and compliant with industry standards and best practices.
“Content from MedCom Trainex is the best in the industry,” said Greg Urquhart, nursing collection editor at Alexander Street Press. “It’s the most trustworthy, reliable training material available, and we believe nursing programs of all stripes will benefit greatly from having greater access to this information.”
The two collections launch on Alexander Street Press’s new interface, which provides access to dozens of features including synchronized scrolling transcripts, tools for creating and sharing video clips and playlists, and unlimited anytime, anywhere access to content.

Nursing Assistant Education in Video and Nursing Assessment in Video are available to libraries worldwide via annual subscription or one-time purchase. No special setup or software is required—all you need is an Internet browser. For more information or to request a trial or price quote, email sales [at] alexanderstreet [dot] com
