NLM Resources for Nurses Videos

Three "NLM Resources for Nurses" videos highlight free, online resources for nursing research, patient education, and drug information:

Resources for Standards and Interoperability

The Nursing Standards and Interoperability Web page is for nurses, students, informaticians and anyone interested in nursing terminologies for systems development. The two minute video, Leveraging UMLS Synonymy to Extract Nursing Terms from SNOMED CT, demonstrates how to use the Metathesaurus to find CUIs and extract concept-level synonyms between SNOMED CT and other nursing terminologies.

PubMed for Nurses Tutorial

The PubMed for Nurses Tutorial was created specifically to help nurses efficiently find literature using PubMed.  The five videos with exercises to test your knowledge were designed to be completed in less than 30 minutes.
