Q. Where can I find nursing academic articles?



Go to this link: Nursing Databases

You probably want to start with CINAHL which focuses specifically on nursing and provides academic scholarly sources. You will see many other medical databases listed that you may want to try also.

How to get to this list from the library website:
library.puc.edu -> Databases (link on left side) -> Subject: nursing (drop-down list across top left)


The library subscribes to many collections of journals for you, and these collections are found in "databases". Each database we have available has a different variety of journals that make up it's collection. As a nursing student, you should become very familiar with the main Nursing database: CINAHL. All the journals in that database are nursing focused and scholarly.

From the library home page library.puc.edu look to the left side. You will see "Databases" at the top of the left column. Click that and you will see an alphabetical list of all our databases. You can scroll down or click the letter "C" to quickly find CINAHL.

Once you see the CINAHL search page, type a subject term or two at the top search fields. Don't type in a whole sentence but stick to a few broad subject terms like "diabetes" "pediatric" bladder cancer" "trauma" etc. You can add more terms to your search after you get some initial results if you want to narrow down to a more specific topic.

If a librarian is not currently on duty, you can leave questions at help@puc.libanswers.com or text 707-948-6639.
