For Nursing resources, go to the library's Nursing Databases (link below).  

 

To access these databases, you will need your College of the Mainland student ID number.  

 

Using the All EBSCO Nursing Databases as an example, I searched 'in patient' and 'nurse concerns' (without quotes). After limiting to Full Text articles and Scholarly (Peer Reviewed Journals) there were 754 articles that matched those search terms. The next step is to add some search limits, using the Thesaurus terms, Major Headings or Subjects, to narrow your search results.  There are other options to use as limiters, such as Date of Publication, the Age range of the patients, Geography, if you are only interested in certain areas, e.g. United States, Great Britain, other countries and even some individual states.

 

These and similar searches can be done in our other nursing databases.

 

It is also a good idea to try to think of other words that may define what you are looking for, e,g, nursing or nurses, instead of nurse.  

 

I am also adding a link to our All Nursing libguides, which may give you some additional resources for your search.
