This recorded presentation will provide an overview of the Open RN project, tour three nursing OER textbooks, and share associated H5P learning activities. Three Open RN nursing textbooks have been published in Pressbooks wtih CC BY licensing, including Nursing Pharmacology, Nursing Skills, and Nursing Fundamentals. The Nursing Pharmacology book was published in June 2020 and won the OE Global Award for Excellence in September 2020. The Nursing Skills and Nursing Fundamentals books were published in Summer 2021 and were cowinners of the OE Global Award for Excellence in October 2021.

Several associated H5P branching scenarios with CC BY licensing were shared with the OER community during the COVID pandemic to make nursing virtual simulations "open for all." Students are able to access these virtual simulations using a hyperlink and internet access, with no additional hardware or software required. Additional virtual simulations continue to be developed and released regularly in LibreStudio. To date, the Open RN textbooks have over 330,000 international users and over one million international pageviews. Student feedback and learning outcomes will be shared during the presentation.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Describe the Open RN project
  • Explain how to access the Open RN textbooks and virtual simulations
  • Plan how to incorporate Open RN resources into their curriculum
