NUR 440 - Research and Evidence Based Practice

This guide is to assist NUR 440 students in using nursing databases, learning about EBP and to assist with the course project.

Nursing Journals on Ovid 


Over 400 indexed journals and periodicals that are central to the working needs of nursing and allied health professionals. This database also has a core set of journals from Lippincott Williams & Wilkins covering everything from oncology to critical care and administration. 

This database works a bit differently than other library resources, users are encouraged to use phrases and sentences and NOT use boolean searching that combines keywords with AND OR NOT. Please see the videos and documents below that provide an overview and tips on the best ways to utilize the Nursing Journals @Ovid database. This is another database that you may have access to professionally in a workplace.
