This site aims to be a resource for clinical nurses; information,
a book shop (where we've done some of the searching for you), and, perhaps
most important, a site that brings you quality nursing humour, supplied,
almost all, by nurses for nurses.
The Target Audience of this site is clinical nurses; that
is, niurses who actually deal first hand with patients. There may be items
of interest to managers, edicators and other people - but clinical nurses
are who we're here for.
The site does not offer any Medical Advice - but just
to be clear, nothing on this site should be assumed to be Medical Advice,
nor a substitute for Medical Advice. If you need Medical Advice, then see
a doctor, as soon as practically possible.

I make no decisions about how useful or 'good' your site is.
stick firmly to sites which are directly of interest to clinical nurses.

browsing for many people, and is very annoying.
- No site which appears
to be an affiliate of a site which is already listed.
- The site must be
working properly. Failure may be a technical fault or (all too often these days)
- No sites whose URL forwards to another.
- I do not
have the resources to assess non-English sites.
- Business sites should

email, post address (box number is not sufficient).and telephone.
Submissions must include a web site address !!
- Due to our limited resources,
I regret we only list national and international resources.
- I do not
list sites where essential information is only supplied on registration - I would
advise people never to register until they know what they are going to get!
Sites where the primary aim is scams, schemes, Multi Level Marketing or an excess
of affiliations. There's a balance.
- Sites using "comet cursor"
or other intrusive software.
