1. About the Database

Nursing Education in Video is a unique online collection of videos created specifically for the education and training of nurses, nursing assistants, and other healthcare workers. The collection's wealth of video and multiplicity of perspectives allow students and practitioners to see, experience, and study nursing techniques and theories in ways never before possible. Nursing Education in Video's suite of tools—searches and browses powered by Semantic Indexing™ and searchable transcripts synchronized to video—give the ability to drill down in seconds to find the footage of interest from hundreds of hours of video. The collection features full videos, rather than just short clips, providing for the most comprehensive nursing education video collection ever assembled.

The videos in this collection have been created by Medcom-Trainex, the world’s leading producer of nursing education videos. These videos have earned more than 50 major awards for excellence, including the prestigious Emmy award.  All of the videos in the collection have been created with the guidance of the Medcom-Trainex advisory board, and are regularly reviewed for accuracy, currency, and compliance with US Federal regulations from agencies such as OSHA and CMS.  More information about Medcom-Trainex and the advisory board can be found at

New videos will be added to the collection annually, ensuring that users always have the most up-to-date video content available anywhere in the world.  On certain occasions, videos in the collection may be replaced in order to reflect changes in accepted practices and principles. Please contact for more information on our replacement and updating policies.

Key video collection features: Alexander Street streaming video collections combine the excitement of video with the uniquely powerful search capabilities our collections are known for. We've developed software applications that make use of Alexander Street's Semantic Indexing™ to enable precise searching and finding; easy browsing and moving about; citations down to the second; and searchable transcripts. Our video can be shared via embeddable links; user-created playlists and clips, with annotation features and the ability to incorporate other content from outside the collection; and more. These features and capabilities render video as useful for research and classroom use as any scholarly text.

  • uniquely powerful browse and search capabilities enabled by ASP's Semantic Indexing™
  • multiple points of access—browses, searches, thumbnail images, transcripts—allowing you to find your point of interest in hundreds of hours of video within seconds
  • synchronized, searchable transcripts

  • annotated playlists—you can make, annotate, and share playlists for course or individual use, and you can include links to materials or resources outside of the collection to make this your one-stop resource

  • the ability to create synchronized annotations and multi-media presentations
  • an embeddable video player and playlist for use on a class Web site, library home page, or an electronic syllabus—lets you drive usage and deliver content to users where and when they need it without instructions or countless screens and clicks
