Nursing journals/articles

I am doing a big project for my second year of nursing school and we have to find articles related to our topic and do bib cards on them to incorperate into our final paper for the project. The journals/articles must be writen by a Registered Nurse. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good site or sites I could find articles on?? Thanks

I'm assuming that you've searched through your school's research databases? (CINAHL, etc)

yes i have

yes i have

CINAHL is the resource I always use to find nursing articles. Have you spoken with your research librarian? They often have great ideas and approaches to find what you need.

Specializes in CNA.
yes i have

What did you find?

Remember that peer reviewed databases are not as easy to search as google. Ask a librarian to help you with your first few searches and you'll get the hang of it.

I have used databases for several years for previous research. I found articles on my project subject but nothing was written by a nurse. I am just having trouble finding articles writen by RN's

What is your topic?

Specializes in Critical Care; Cardiac; Professional Development.

Cinhal and Ovid have been my best resources. They have the ability to search for only research articles (as opposed to informational articles or editorials) and to search by the author or authors being RNs. I would suggest that you go to your school's librarian for a tutorial.

Ok. I will check those out, thanks. My topic is handwashing and spreading of germs among elementary students. I did end up finding one, I had to look at the actual article to see that is said RN. On the authors part is just said the name.
