Finding Evidence-Based Articles

To find evidence-based nursing research articles, you will want to use Library Services' nursing and medical databases.  These databases are located in the list of Nursing & Allied Health databases under the A-Z database list.  

START:  Search first in the CINAHL database.  You can limit your search to last 5 years, evidence-based articles, and other criteria.

Recommended Databases:

See the short videos below for information on searching in CINAHL and Ovid.  If you like, you can also try searching PubMed.  A 30 minute tutorial is available below on that database from the National Library of Medicine.  

You may also want to attend a 30 minute workshop on "Library Resources for Nursing Students."  These are offered by Library Services throughout the fall and spring semesters.
