Answer

The definitive nursing database is CINAHL, but we have others as well. You can access CINAHL and all our nursing databases from the Health & Nursing tab in the Databases by Subject LibGuide (link below). If you select EBSCO: All Health, Nursing & Medical Databases you will have the option to limit results to scholarly (peer reviewed) resources.

In general the best approach is to:

  1. Perform a search on your topic.
  2. Limit to full text under the Limit Your Results box.
  3. Limit to 2006-2011. As a nursing student you should not use anything older than 5 years.
  4. Limit to peer reviewed under the Limit Your Results box if required by your instructor. 
 If you are finding there are too many to sort through on the result list try this:
  • Subject: Thesaurus Term
    Use to narrow to a specific subject thesaurus term retrieved by your search. Sort of like subject, but more specific—can be the most effective to narrowing down to your real topic.
  • Subject
    Use to narrow down to a subject retrieved by your search; selecting an appropriate subject one can get you closer to what you really want for your paper.
