Want a way to stay up to date on the latest medical news? Check out MedPage Today. MedPage Today is an excellent reliable source for breaking medical news brought to you by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. You can browse medical news by specialty, including nursing. News postings have been peer reviewed by Perelman School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education.
In order to see the postings in full, you must register. Registration is free, and by registering, you can receive customized news (practice and policy). Other resources available on MedPage Today include access to clinical databases: drugs, disease, procedures, clinical checklists, and labs (under resources tab). The Education tab offers CME/ CE’s but these seem to be geared more for physicians rather than nurses.
MedPage Today also has an app available for downloading to your mobile device to make following medical news more convenient. Download the app from the itunes store or the Android Marketplace.
