Healthcare Clinician Resources – S

Feel free to email me with any links you have or any categories of links you would like to see. Please note that I will review the suggested link. I will add your recommendations if they are scholarly, academic, or scientific in nature such as federal healthcare guideline. I do not place links to opinion pieces, non-scholarly blogs, unreferenced materials, or materials presented by non-credentialled persons or institutions. I also do not link to sites that are potentially “fishing” for clientele, such as those funded by attorneys/legal advisors. I am also not interested in promoting any products!

  1. These valuable resources are highly beneficial to both CNAs and Nurses who work in hospice, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, ECU, and home health agencies. They can expand their knowledge and understand their field better.
