Nursing Resources: Find Articles

Nursing and Health-Related Databases

CINAHL Complete is the premier nursing database and should be the first place you try to find nursing journal articles.

To find articles about nursing topics, complete a keyword search in CINAHL.

  • To do keyword searching in CINAHL, simply enter your keyword(s).
  • There's not one correct way to do keyword searching in CINAHL – it is important to try different keyword combinations.
  • CINAHL contains both citations and full text articles. A citation provides information about the article, but not the article itself. Limit your results to Full Text if you want to search only full articles.  
  • If your search retrieves too many results, try adding another keyword.

CINAHL Search Examples (Keyword):

  • population health
  • collaboration AND nursing
  • technology AND nursing
