This online guide is developed specifically for those doing research in Nursing. Using the tabs above, you will find recommended lists of resources which encompasses print materials, electronic databases, and selected Internet resources. 

This guide lists only resources that deal primarily with nursing and health-related topics. 

Because nursing includes many disciplines such as biology, psychology, sociology, education, and business management you may need to consult resources in those fields also.
