    The allnurses team is proud to announce the launch of our school reviews directory: Accredited Nursing Universities and Colleges | Peer Reviews.

    rating-reviews-jpg Our strongest asset is our members. Our weakness is that information is found all over the site. For example, these days you can find school reviews in Pre-Nursing, General Student, the Online Distance Learning forum, and yes, even in the General Nurse forum ... I can go on. But, I think you get the message.

    With the school directory, our goal is to have all the school reviews in one central area. Making it easy for our readers to find what they want when they need it the most.

    Can you submit a school review today?

    The review process will take about a minute to complete.

    Reviews can be submitted anonymously. (Select your school > click 'Add Review' > check the 'Anonymous Review' option)

    Reviews can be submitted as a pre-student (doing research at school before attending), as a student, as a parent, alumni, or as an employee.

    You may submit more than 1 review.

    I f your school is not listed please post your request here and we'll make sure it gets listed.

    Currently, we have 60 schools listed. We are adding schools every week.

    SCHOOL REVIEWS CONTEST

    We are giving away $200!!!

    Everyone who submits a review will qualify to win a $100 amazon.com gift card.

    We will choose 2 winners.

    Winners will be announced May 31st.

    Thank you.

    I posted a review but now think I would like to have done so anonymously. Is there a means to change my selection?

    Hot objects have fast-moving energy particles. Cold object's energy particles are slower. If the Nurse places the cold stethoscope (A) on the warm Patient (B), the fast-moving particles of B transfer energy to the slower-moving particles of A resulting in B’s jump through the roof. Because B particles now lose some of their kinetic energy to A particles, B particles start to move more slowly. This causes the temperature of B to fall and suddenly plunge back to the bed. Before long, A and B have the same temperature.

    It all boils down (no pun intended) to this: Don't touch your patient, who is already in pain, with a cold stethoscope because it can ruin the tiles on the ceiling.

    allnurses is about you. The nurse that craves knowledge. The nurse that wants to expand their career. The nursing student who wants to pass the NCLEX. The retired nurse with vast experience who desires to interact and share with others.

    allnurses is about helping you become a better nurse.

    We do not offer medical advice. We do not provide legal advice. What we offer is a place for nurses to be themselves and to learn from others. We offer students a place where they can better understand nursing, gain study habits, gain knowledge that they would not have learned in school.

    What YOU get out of allnurses is up to you.

    Here's what a long-time member said about Does allnurses.com make you a better nurse?

    Quote from MassED
    ...being a 'better' nurse ... takes into account your personal opinions, biases, your own story, others' stories, all of which can help you at the bedside. Greater understanding, I say, is how this site can help each person. Each little piece of you that is more enlightened can add to the whole nurse as 'better' or more culturally aware, or better able to understand another aspect of nursing that we're not in.... many ways to better oneself through nursing... and it's not all just clinical...
    allnurses is multi-cultural. We have members from all around the World. Nurses and nursing students want the same thing you do. Don't you want to be the best nurse you can be?

    Here's what some of our members had to say about allnurses.com:
    Quote from nursemarion
    Wow, to have this many nurses at your fingertips as a resource, definitely yes! The years of experience, the sources, the tips. I feel empowered and blessed to have this. Nursing can be a stressful, lonely place. Especially in fields that I now work in such as school health and home health. To know that I can get on here and ask a question from a collective knowledge base like this is a true gift.
    Quote from sasha2lady
    I've learned so much on here in many aspects ranging from dealing with difficult mgmt coworkers and getting wounds healed. I can talk on here about multiple issues that bug me or that I don't understand and get valuable input from others. Some of the advice and stories I've read on here have given me encouragement and motivation to do a better job . Priceless
    Quote from TheCommuter
    The site has helped me by bestowing new information upon me that I would not have known otherwise. In other words, it has enhanced my fund of knowledge.
    Quote from crownurse
    I don't feel so alone. I have seen and done a lot of stupid things, now I know it's part of the learning experience.
    Quote from pagandeva2000
    I get to see what has happened to others and I am more empowered to either not make the same mistakes or to better critically think. Many times, I have said to myself "I just read about a similar situation on allnurses...let me try to do it this way..." and most times, it worked.
    Quote from talaxandra
    AN may not have made me a better theoretical nurse, but I think participating here has made me a better communicator, clinician, resource and mentor, which are all essential elements of my nursing practice
