Alexander Street Press Launches Online Collection Devoted To Nursing Education
SEPTEMBER 12, 2011 (ALEXANDRIA, VA) -- Nursing Education in Video, an online collection of streaming video for the training and education of nurses and nursing assistants, is the latest release from electronic publisher Alexander Street Press.
The result of a partnership with Medcom-Trainex, one of the largest providers of nursing education video programs worldwide, Nursing Education in Video covers the fundamentals of nurse training as well as advanced technical and procedural topics. This collection includes 260 full-length titles at launch and new videos are added regularly.
“Everyone knows that quality video is invaluable in nursing education, but until now it was incredibly difficult and expensive to find and maintain a broad collection, even in DVD form,” says Greg Urquhart, Vice President of Business Development. “Nursing Education in Video not only provides such a collection, but also makes it possible to incorporate these videos into the curriculum in ways never before possible.”
All of the videos in the collection are thoroughly indexed and transcribed, making it easy for users to find, cite and share exactly what they’re looking for. Titles are regularly reviewed for accuracy, and are updated to reflect the most current, best-practice standards from healthcare professional organizations, such as the Joint Commission and the AORN, and compliance with federal regulations from agencies such as OSHA and CMS.
Videos in the collection, created by Medcom with the guidance of noted doctors, nurses and subject experts, cover more than forty topical areas, including pediatrics, gerontology, basic clinical skills, medication administration, surgical care, infection control, communications and HIPAA compliance.
