Library activities for National Nursing Week May 7 - 13, 2018

This May 7 – 13 is National Nursing Week. Every year during this week, the library promotes our excellent nursing resources to nursing students at Bow Valley College.

This year, the following events are scheduled

Monday, May 7, 11am – 1pm
Come to the 2nd floor of the library to see demonstrations of the nursing resources you can access. These resources are high quality and are often used on the job. They are also more reliable sources of information for your school assignments. Some of these include:
  • Nursing Reference Centre - includes peer-reviewed research articles, professional journal articles, evidence-based practice resources, videos, and images
  • SMART Imagebase - high quality medical images and animations
  • Dynamed - a reference tool containing accurate, up-to-date summaries of peer-reviewed research findings in all areas of medicine and healthcare
  • RxTx - includes thousands of Health Canada-approved drug monographs, Health Canada advisories and warnings, printable patient information, clinical tools (e.g. drugs of choice during pregnancy and breastfeeding, drug-food interactions, and lab values), and customizable drug comparison tables
  • PrepStep - includes practice NCLEX exams
Tuesday, May 8, 11am – 1pm
Come to the 2nd floor of the library and complete a library scavenger hunt to receive a prize (candy).
