Nursing - Collaborative and Bridging Programs

This guide will introduce you to important Library resources for nursing students in the Collaborative Nursing Degree Program and the Bridging to University Nursing Program

Article Databases

CINAHL records will link to full text articles in the following databases,as well as many others, when you click on the "Search for Article" link (you should not need to search these databases separately!)

Journal Types

There are two types of journals you will find in the online journal databases and in print in the Library:

Scholarly Journals:

Scholarly journal articles provide reports of original research studies, review articles describing research studies and in-depth articles on nursing theory or nursing knowledge. These articles are usually written by qualified professionals such as nursing professors or PhD nursing candidates. The authors are usually associated with a university or college or a research institute.

Professional Journals (Trade Publications)

Professional  or trade journals may provide overviews on diseases and conditions, practical advice on nursing practices and interventions, case studies; and information on issues and trends in nursing.  They are useful in providing basic information but they are not considered scholarly.

For More Information see Journal Articles and Trade Magazines under the Types of Resources section in the Getting Started with Library Resources guide.
