Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN(Slippery Rock University )
Description:This book provides a quick resource and reference guide of the best Internet Web sites available to date to help nurses improve their practice. It is not an exhaustive list of sources.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide a discussion of the best Internet Web sites today. The top six to ten clinical and professional sites are described and evaluated. This is important since the Internet has become a big part of our practice.
Audience:The target audience for this book is nurses wanting an introduction to the Internet or those needing a quick reference guide. These authors have published other books about the Internet.
Features:This book is divided into clinical web sites and professional web sites. Experts in the field selected the top Web sites for each category. A description of each site includes a summary of the site, intended audience, sponsor, level of information, and relevance to nurses. Chapters on browsing the Internet and evaluating Web sites are included. An alphabetical index of sites is available in an appendix, but the authors stress that this is not an exhaustive list of Web sites.
Assessment:This book should be useful to its target audience. New to this second edition are Web sites related to career development, outcomes management and evaluation, nursing administration, and evidence-based practice. Web sites suitable for patient use are identified. While it is not an exhaustive listing, it should be useful as a tool to the Internet.
