Nursing Research

Guide for locating library and open access web-based resources for Practical Nurse and B.S.N courses, especially research courses.

Research Databases for topics related to Nursing courses

The library has many healthcare databases which include the full text of thousands of research journals on nursing, healthcare administration, psychology and other sciences. There are basic and advanced search fields and ways to limit your search to peer-reviewed or trade journals, by publication years, patient populations, only clinical trials, reports, dissertations, and EBP articles. For example, CINAHL has useful limits under "Publication Type" for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis, the highest levels of evidence in the EBP pyramid.

Direct links are provided below. All databases can be also accessed from the A-Z Databases page.
