Nursing: Articles & Databases

Key Databases for Nursing

Use library databases to find journal articles. Database refers to an online, searchable index of citations for various materials, usually articles. These records will contain: 

  • The citation for the article (title, authors, journal name, year of publication, etc.)
  • An abstract or summary of the article
  • Keywords or subject terms that identify the article's main topics
  • A link where you can get (or request) the full article

Best Bets!

Should You Use CINAHL or PubMed? This page discusses characteristics of both databases.
