They are more doctor-training than nurse-training oriented, but at least you can see the procedure. And if you actually need to have the procedure yourself, you can get an idea of what it will be like -- if you really want to know!

This is from a post on the LIBREF-L listserv by Phyllis Bratton.  This resource is great for science lirbarian in acadmeics to link to and promote; media specialists to aid their biology and other science classes in K12; public lirbarians to aid patrons in researching an upcoming procedure they or someone they know might be having. 

There are all sorts of videos of real surgeries on Medline here:
