Nursing Journal article over Tuberculosis

  1. ]I am currently in my second semesterof the ADN program. I am doing a presentation over tuberculosis which is dueone Tuesday 02/19/13. I have completed the presentation but we are required toprovide a nursing journal article related to the topic we were eachindividually assigned. I am having the hardest time finding a "NursingJournal Article" over Tuberculosis and would highly appreciate it ifanyone could help me out. I have spent hours trying to find one. It has to bepublished in the U.S. and must be within the past 5 years. Any suggestionswould really be helpful. Thanks

    Try nursing they have lots of journal articles. There were even a few written recently on TB. You just have to dig. I googled "journal of nursing" and it took me there.

    How did you complete your project without this article? My suggestion is to join medscape it is free and has thousands of nursing article that are free and current.

    Assuming you did not get this assignment late on the Friday afternoon before this holiday weekend, the place to have started is not your computer but your librarian at school. S/he will have contacts with databases of nursing literature (the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature, CINAHL, is the motherlode), your school may have a contract for students to access its contents for free, and s/he can teach you how to maximize your search possibilities. This is one reason that librarians exist, to help people access information. Use them. They love to be asked. Your community library can also get you things on interlibrary loan for nothing. Really, sitting at your computer is not the be-all, end-all of getting information.

    How DID you put together any kind of presentation without supporting articles, anyway?

    I suggest that if you or your classmates are ever assigned to do a presentation on something, that you give one on how to find and identify articles for background info for papers. Somebody should have taught you that already, but now you have some ideas on what to do.
