I am a lab instructor it is refressing to see good videos other than UTube to tell my students to go to.

I am a 2 semester nursing student, and we just learned how to give meds in the lab last week. It just happens that tonight, my husband (who is not a nurse) have to give me an IM injection (HCG for fertility). I was terrified, but your video eased my anxiety.

The youtube video was horrible (and it was all wrong!) It contradicted what I've learned in class (ie: video said it's ok to have bubbles, didn't aspirate, pinch the skin instead of tauting it) It was ALL WRONG!

The problem with "non youtube" videos, is that it's been 4 years now, and the video no longer works. If it were on youtube, we could still actually watch it. Refreshing? Apparently not.
