Evidence Based Practice Toolkit

Core Nursing library databases

Use these databases to find the best articles from Nursing journals.

In many library databases you can can limit your search to just practice guidelines - look for a limiter called "guidelines" or "practice guidelines," often found under "Publication Types." You often can also limit to a certain publication type, such as a clinical trial or randomized control trial.

Some databases provide article citations, but not full text. The Find It! button will link to full text across databases. If full text is not available, request it via Interlibrary Loan.
