Computer networks have opened up a new world of communication and information for nurses. As you read this, nurses around the world are using their computers to access reference materials, to complete assignments for continuing education courses, to ask practice-related questions of colleagues they know only through electronic mail, to read messages posted to nursing-related bulletin boards or newsgroups, and to chat in real time with colleagues or fellow students. Whether you are a student nurse or a nurse in the areas of clinical practice, administration, research, education, or information systems, you can take advantage of the world of online resources to enhance your education and your career and to make meaningful connections with others who share your concern for excellence in nursing practice.
