Comprehensive database covering all Medline content and more. Sophisticated search algorithms match your keywords to controlled vocabulary terms (MeSH).
Full text access and other research tips:
Use the "Core Nursing" limiter in CINAHL to zero in on peer-reviewed articles in the Nursing literature. Near the top of the the left margin on your result list page, click "show more" under the date slider bar. Under "Journal Subset," select "Core Nursing."
If full text is not available, follow the link to "Request via Interlibrary Loan." Complete the form and submit. The article will be emailed to you, usually within 24-48 hours.
Last minute rush? Check the "EBSCO Full Text" limiter at the top of the left margin on your result list page to eliminate results that are not immediately available in full text.
Too many search words can eliminate useful results! Try using just one or two words relevant to your topic. It's okay if the result list is large - results are ranked by relevance. Once you apply your limiters, the best articles will rise to the top.
