BoardVitals problems – some fixes in the works

BoardVitals has been working to resolve our registration issues. You do not have to use a special link to register anymore. You can register with your lsuhsc.edu email. All lsuhsc.edu users will now be added to the LSUHSC-New Orleans account. LSUHSC-Shreveport (aka LSU Health Shreveport) users should register with their new lsuhs.edu email to be registered under the Shreveport account. Our libraries are working to identify existing users that have been assigned to the wrong account, and we will try to correct those users as soon as possible.

Board Vitals technical difficulties continue, 2/1/21

We are still experiencing some technical difficulties with our Board Vitals subscription. It seems that most of the issues are with relatively new accounts.

We have contacted support for assistance and will update the blog when the issue has been resolved. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

STAT!Ref updated platform

STAT!Ref ebooks platform is getting a facelift. The new platform will debut on Monday, September 9th. No interruptions in service are anticipated. Read the official announcement from Teton Data Services on the company’s web page.

Our subscription to STAT!Ref comes with over 100 ebooks, including popularly requested titles such as American Academy of Pediatrics Red Book, Davis’ Drug Guide for Nurses, ICD-10 guides, Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, Wintrobe’s Hematology, and much more. Our access to BoardVitals online exam review is also through STAT!Ref.

This subscription is coordinated by a group of partner libraries in 3 states, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma, allowing participating institutions to share access and cost.

BoardVitals board reviews now on STAT!Ref!

BoardVitals

The LSUHSC-New Orleans Libraries are pleased to announce that we now have access to a new exam review database, BoardVitals.  Our access to BoardVitals is available through our subscription to STAT!Ref.

Our subscription includes 8 test banks:

  • NCLEX-PN
  • NCLEX-RN
  • USMLE Step 1
  • USMLE Step 1, Part 2
  • USMLE Step 2
  • USMLE Step 3

Setting up an account is easy with your lsuhsc.edu email address!

There are a few ways to get to the BoardVitals registration page:

  • If you are on campus, you can go directly to the BoardVitals sign up page: https://www.boardvitals.com/users/sign_up, or you can log in to the STAT!Ref database from the Library’s web page, and then click on the BoardVitals link.
  • If you are off-campus, you can access the STAT!Ref database from the Library’s web page remotely using your library barcode and PIN. Don’t forget to use an “Off Campus Access” link.  Once you are logged into our STAT!Ref subscription, click on the BoardVitals link.

Fill out the sign-up application on the BoardVitals platform making sure to use your lsuhsc.edu email account.  Shortly after you submit your application, BoardVitals will send you an email with a link to accept and confirm your account.  Once that process is complete, you can sign in using your email address and new password to access our subscribed tests.  You can then access BoardVitals through our STAT!Ref database or by going directly to the BoardVitals web site: http://www.boardvitals.com/.

Please note that once on the BoardVitals platform, there will be options to trial or purchase other test banks on your account (and personal dollar).  These options are not funded through our subscription.

BoardVitals has created some helpful video tutorials, so be sure to check those out – https://www.boardvitals.com/video.

We hope you find this new resource helpful in your studies!
