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
