NUR 202: Research and Ethics: Articles

Scholarly Articles in Nursing

This page points you to the major databases and journals for Nursing. You're going to want to focus your research time primarily on the resources on this page.

Be sure you're using a variety of search terms when you search. Often we use only one or two search terms, which means we may not find the full range of articles related to our topic. Once you find some good articles, pay attention to how the authors describe your topic. Use any new vocabulary you discover to conduct more searches in these databases to find related sources.
