This is a great tool to enhance a simulation or skills lab to make the vital signs readings more realistic! Check it out here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/vitalsignsim/

We've been stumbling across quite a few useful infographics lately, so we thought we'd keep up the trend. After finding some images related to specific diseases, we realized these might be useful for those of you who are visual learners. While you may have already listened to a lecture on these diseases, we thought this series of infographics might help solidify the information. These are also great for instructors who would like to provide more resources for students who need visual instruction.

We found this fascinating infographic from University of Florida outlining the demographics of different diseases in the US. Examining this from a Nurse Education standpoint, we think it's fascinating how different regions may provide extremely different clinical experiences for students. For example, students in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia will probably work with more Heart Disease and Stroke patients than their northern counterparts. On the other hand, a student working in California facilities is more likely to encounter HIV/AIDS patients.

University of Florida came up with this great infographic to help patients learn more about the medications they may be prescribed. However, I thought this was a great resource for Nursing students learning about various drugs. It isn't very comprehensive, but it does give you a look at some of the basic meds, their doses and the process manufacturer's go through to get approval for new medications.

We found some great examples of weird, unexpected and common problems that come into the E.R. around Thanksgiving. This activity is great for students to complete before holiday vacation when you're not ready to start a new lesson, but you still want students thinking. We like to give prizes (or snacks) to the student to solves all the cases first. For a printable/editable version of this sheet click here.
