This site is used as a shortcut that can link the public and professionals to published resource sites to understand their health, disease processes, medications (over the counter and prescriptions) and lab information.
The public should learn more about their health by requesting their lab results, understanding their medications and by reviewing their course of treatments initially through their healthcare provider.
By reviewing public information in a condensed form as a reference site such as All Species Nurse, all patients will be able to communicate better with their healthcare provider in an effort to improve their quality of care.
As an added plus, students, novice nurses and healthcare professionals can refer to All Species Nurse websites for formularies, medication information, review of skills available online, as well as specific services provided by All Species Nurse that assists professionals in their practice or careers through complicated transitions.
The unique quality of the All Species Nurse websites is that it is broad in containing both Human and Animal information for the public and professionals.
The categories to the right are organized according to Public Outreach sites, Veterinary areas (including "find a vet hospital in your area or a petsitter) even for human interests such as "find a hospital," to "find a daycare or baby sitter."
**Use this site as your overall guide to finding, sorting out and learning about health and whatever else affects you and your life! Use what you learn to communicate effectively with your health care provider or veterinarian.**
