RN-BSN Library Guide

Use this Library Research Guide to help locate evidence-based resources including articles, information on research appraisal, statistics, evidence translation, clinical practice tools, informatics and professional resources.

Interlibrary Loan

If you see an article that looks helpful, but you do not see the full-text link on the right, please submit an Interlibrary Loan request for it. It’s a free service for SNHU students and it generally only takes 2-4 business days to get you the PDF from a library that has it. This is highly recommended for nursing students as there are many nursing journals that put an embargo on the most recent issues.

Library Databases for Nursing 

The Shapiro Library subscribes to numerous databases filled with scholarly articles, book chapters, research reports, statistics, eBooks, and more from thousands of respected publications/publishers. The two primary nursing databases used are CINAHL Complete and Nursing Journals @Ovid. The following list is other databases that present different publications which may help in your research needs. You may need to look outside the nursing discipline literature for topics that touch on other related disciplines like psychology, education, or business as examples. Familiarizing yourself with the A-Z Database List and the different ways to sort our databases by subject, vendor, or type of material is important.
