    Rena,
    I have access to library databases through my school and through my employer. I can see if one of those databases does have Nursing Research online full text. I myself though just did a project and got a few articles from that journal, and they were NOT online. I guess it may depend on which volume/issue you are looking for.

    Are you looking for a particular article? If so I may be able to help you get a hold of it.

    thanks for the offer susy. i really just need to browse through and see what strikes me. we are doing bib summaries.

    i have access to databases through my school also but am having a hard time finding full text stuff. TONS of abstracts but i need the entire thing.

    well, i guess it's off to the library for some good old fashioned paper research instead of this modern new-fangled internet stuff. :chuckle

    Let me know if you're interested and I'll email you some of these (Adobe writer files). These are articles that I am using for my own research methods class, so they're easy to pick apart.

    Best Practice: Maintaining oral hydration in older people. JoannaBriggs institute, 5(1)

    Cheng, T.Y.L & Boey, K.W (2002). The effectiveness of a cardiac rehabilitation program on self-efficacy and exercise tolerance. Clinical Nursing Research, 11(1), 10-21

    Barnard, A. & Gerber, R. (1999) Understanding Technology in contemporary surgical nursing: a phenomenological examination. Nursing Inquiry 6, 157-166.

    I have more if you want them. PM me with you e-mail address.

    Does it have to be from that particular journal? (Nursing Research) Otherwise, do a search for online articles only - there are numerous "research based" articles online.

    I know that Western Journal of Nursing Research is entirely online through EBSCOhost and CINAHL.

    Hope this helps.

    adrienurse - i pm'd you.

    susy - no, it doesn't have to be specifically Nursing Research but the article must be a research article that has at least one RN listed in the references.

    now i'm off to check out the one you suggested. thanks.
