Nurse Education on a 64GB USB flash drive.

This series of videos forms part of an on-going project, developing video based material for nurse education. Based on the youtube site, below is a list of the topics covered. It is a huge amount of material, in excess of 70 hours of teaching (over 400 video files). A hundred podcasts will also be included. If you have any questions, we are happy to answer any emails sent to

The videos are recorded as mp4 video files, which will play on OSX or Windows and many mobile devices. The player we recommend is VLC, see

The USB flash drive is available for £50 or $80 including postage and packaging when ordered from this site.

If you want to watch with your fellow students, you are welcome to do so, but please do not re-distribute this content. Each USB flash drive you buy will enable us to send campbellteaching books and other educational resources to students in less economically developed countries.
