Databases & Articles

As a Nursing student, you will mostly be using Nursing professional literature but you might also want to use databases from other disciplines. For instance, insurance, employee management, or hospital as a business questions are best covered in a Business database like ABI/INFORM.  Each of our databases covers a different selection of journals, so try multiple databases even in the same discipline.
