Last month, ProQuest released Nursing & Allied Health Premium, a new solution designed to support the teaching, learning, and research needs of nursing and allied health students and educators. This new offering combines ProQuest’s Nursing & Allied Health Database and Nursing Education in Video into a single subscription on the ProQuest platform.
Development of this product kicked into high gear in early 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic began its surge around the world, academia pivoted to online learning, and many students weren’t allowed in hospitals or other medical centers to complete their clinical requirements. In-person time at clinicals and university lab space remains at a premium, and hybrid learning models will likely continue for months, if not longer.
To support the growing demand for remote teaching and learning, the ProQuest product team brought together robust clinical video content with journal and text content in one easy-to-use product. Leveraging expert insights from our Nursing & Allied Health Advisory board, as well as many interviews with faculty, librarians, and students, the team created a user experience designed around the content that is needed most.
The new interface makes it much easier for users, including those with little research experience, to access clinical skills videos, peer-reviewed journals, and information about patients who come from different cultures. More experienced information seekers will find high-level academic and grey literature robust enough to suit their needs.
In short, Nursing & Allied Health Premium delivers a mix of practical and theoretical content in an interface that helps students build the research and clinical skills they'll need for success in their courses and careers. We’re proud to offer this resource to the hard-working healthcare educators and students who need it most.
