Nursing Journals

  1. Hi -

    Just wondering what nursing journals (if any) that other students are subscribing to. I figure it can't hurt to start reading up on the current nursing procedures and research NOW, before we actually get thrown to the wolves! (And Lord knows we have SO MUCH extra reading time on our hands, right?)

    Does anyone have any good ones (that wouldn't be too intense for student level?)

    I am a bit of an info-attic so I have a bunch of different journal subscriptions. To name just a few Nursing2004, American Journal of Nursing, Advance for Nursing, Nursing Spectrum, and Issues in Nursing. It really depends on what you are looking for in a journal. Nursing 2004 and AJN are very technical, Advance for nursing and Nursing made extremely easy are alot lighter but they generally have good content.

    I just ordered a subscription to Nursing Made Incredibly Easy. I also snag my MIL's old copies of RN and Nursing. Some of the articles and questions are informative, and they do show a lot of procedural stuff.

    And you're right about all our "extra" reading time! My kids are on vacation this week, so I locked myself in the "reading room" with one of my many English Comp. books so I could actually get some studying done!

    I LOVE Nursing2004, and you can get a student discount. They have great articles concerning med errors, latest advances in technology, and focuses on many diseases. It would benefit you to subscribe to it. I have also heard good things about Nursing Made Incredibly Easy. If you are a fan of the book series you will probably love the magazine.

    I got all the Nursing2003 and Travel Nurse issues on Ebay for cheap. Someone usually sets some extra Nursing2004's around our department at school and I try to grab one. I don't have the time to really sit and read a whole issue at once, so they go into the loo. See, even my potty time is taken up by school!! :imbar But it's actually perfect, you know?

    I also just subscribed to Nursing Made Incredibly easy today too! Since I am still taking pre-req's for Nursing Schoo, I figured that this might be something that help me a little.
