NURS : Nursing: Find articles online

Find journal articles in databases

The library has many databases that contain nursing and allied health content.  They include CINAHL (EBSCOhost),  Health Source: Nursing (EBSCOhost), ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source.

To find Nursing journals in the database, look at the source information.  If the journal has nurse or nursing in the title, then the journal is a nursing journal.  There is not a way to just search nursing journals.  All the databases contain journals covering all aspects of health and medicine.

Tips for using databases

1. only use single words or phrases for your search terms.

2. mark full text, so only complete articles will be listed in the results

3. use the filter to mark a date range to find current articles

4. look at the subjects assigned to the article

5. when you print the article in a pdf format the citation information will not print.  You will have to copy and paste into a document or you can save the article to the cloud or Google drive.
