Check out these nursing website recommendations from Kathy Holloway. 



We know that nurses along with other health professionals, are innovative and skilled at providing ‘workarounds’ to meet the needs of those they serve. These innovations, however, often rarely make it out of the service in which they were created. This is recognised and celebrated in the US by the MakerNurse™ (a subsite of MakerHealth) website, launched in September 2013 with the support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The site was created with the goal of empowering nurses and to encourage nurse ‘making’ to change the face of healthcare. The site links to MakerHealth, which contains useful tools and resources that could help more nurses bring their ideas to fruition and lead improvements in patient care.
