Nursing OERs

Open Educational Resources (OERs) are academic materials that anyone can use, adapt, and share freely.  OERs can be textbooks, full courses, lesson plans, videos, tests, software, or any other tool, material, or technique that supports access to knowledge.

Why are OERs Important?

Traditionally, educational materials have a barrier called a "paywall," which means you must pay to access the information.  OERs are created to be accessed, modified, and used for free without restrictions.  This includes textbooks for students and lesson plans for instructors.  By using OERs, you save money and promote open access to learning for everyone.  Below are some examples of OERs for Nursing instruction.
