Free Research Databases for Nurses?


Specializes in Geriatrics.

Hello friends,

I'm looking to access to free research databases to find evidence-based practice articles for independent continuing education purposes. I work with an agency that contracts to long term care homes, so I don't have intranet access to databases like uptodate.com or CINAHL.

What are your go to free medical/ nursing databases?

Thanks in advance!


My top three 'go to' databases are:

Centre for disease control and prevention CDC gov

Agency for healthcare reseach and quality AHRQ gov

Registered nurses of Ontario best practice guidelines RNAO org

I like the National Guidelines Clearinghouse in addition to those previously listed.
