i am starting this thread devoted to listing web resources for nurses not only in australia and new zealand but any of our regional areas. anyone is invited to add to the thread with a new resource or site they would like to share.
the only condition is that the resources added are not for the purposes of advertising as per the terms of service agreement all members agreed to on registering with this site.
non-profit organisations, government heath websites, universities, medical websites (i.e. college of surgeons), hospital websites (esp. ones such as the liverpool hospitals trauma site) and local support organisations are all welcome to be listed. as long as the listing is not done for recruitment or profitable purposes- i.e. you can list say, woop woop university but you can't run a big advertisement saying come and enrol.
so here are the start of the sites. first is the australian registration board listed for all overseas nurses wanting to come and visit our beautiful country.
