Search engines

Needless to present the famous search engine. Fast and powerful, it is the most used search engines on the web. Its success depends on the number of indexed pages, processing speed and system "page ranking", which allows a certain hierarchy between the value of pages.

Google is the tool of choice for research on a specific question or if you know the exact title of the document or website. It loses its power to queries on ambiguous words or too wide. This type of research provides too many results, combining the relevant documents to resources without interest.

Search tips:
- Use keywords specific medical, medicalize your search terms
- "Put quotation marks" to search for compound words, an expression
- Use the Google Advanced Search to narrow your search

Launched in November 2004, Google scholar explores the scientific literature (peer-controlled items, theses, books ...) from publishers, learned societies and universities. It allows to retrieve documents unavailable invisible web on general search engines.

In rival databases and collections of medical journals, its main advantages are its ease of use and its free. However, the actual coverage is unknown. Scholar does not specify commercial publishers nor the archive servers that index. There is no indication of the type of documents processed or the period.

For research in French, Google scholar takes into account the entire archive HAL CCSD (Centre for Direct Scientific Communication) and collections of documentary INIST background.

Search tips:
- Using scientific terms: The search is done in the full natural language
- Narrow your search to the module using "advanced search" (author, limits, date, publications).

The Catalog and Index of French-speaking Medical Sites Rouen University Hospital provides the bulk of the French biomedical literature online. This site of extreme wealth is certainly the best French medical site.
There are more than 25, 248 filings (02.07.07) and updated weekly. The documents are classified according to the thesaurus Mesh.

It is organized around three priorities:
- Resources for Teaching: lectures, guides, MCQs, clinical cases, critical reading of articles, ...
- Evidence-based medicine (based on validated data): good practice guidelines, consensus conferences, meta-analyzes, ...
- Documents for patients and the general public to participate in improving health education.

Ask the people at UoP how long their nursing program has been around. They are likely to say the nursing program has been recently established or has not been around for as long as the nursing programs at CSU.
How long has CSU been around? For probably over a century, and their nursing programs have probably been around for decades.
This means less stress for you as a nursing student because they have their system set up. They have all their course and clinical training sites set up and those sites have had a long relationship with the nursing schools

Yes, it helped me, too, to realize that the info

...about coders making up to $70.00/hr ($145,000/yr), as one educator told me, is false.
It is still a good deal to be able to earn at least 40K a year, and up to 70K a year without a formal degree.
My impression is that this field will be getting increased respect and prestige in the coming years, as reimbursement for medical procedures is based on accurate coding, and being accurate will become a larger and larger factor in medical economics as the population ages and if do provide medical coverage to more of our citizens.
I doubt that this could be fully mechanized, because every patient and every patient's illness is different
