Here are some links to bring you luck…

In my internet travels when trying to find resources, I’m always looking for innovative, economic (okay, free) tools to make life a bit easier.  I’ve found a couple of new sites that I’ve recently stumbled across that turned out to be gems.

Fire Safety Training:   Since we all need to know how to respond to fires, and pulling the extinguishers off the walls to practice isn’t feasible, fire safety training can be a challenge, (and a bit boring as well).  I found this interesting training includes a competency test!   Check out the link here.


Skillstat:  As a nurse outside of the cardiac and emergency world, I am rusty with my EKG rhythms, and get stressed when re-certing for ACLS.  Skillstat offers animated rhythms as well as an EKG game to help dust off the rust.  Here is the link:  Skillstat

Setting up oxygen tanks:  Here’s  a good YouTube video on setting up and managing oxygen E tanks:


Nursys: National nursing license verification.  Maybe you already knew about this, but I just found it.  There is a national site in which you can verify nursing licenses (and check for any disciplinary action as well).  The National Council of the State Boards of Nursing provides a provides a primary source database for verification of nurse licensure and information comes directly from the state and can be found here: Nursys

Need to build or review your HIPAA policies and education?  Here is the link to the CMS regs:  CMS HIPAA resource

Hope you have found these resources helpful.  Oh, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
