What is the best way to find nursing research articles?
Start by searching in the CINAHL database--CINAHL is often the best place to find nursing and allied health articles. You can access CINAHL from the Databases link on the library homepage--it is in Top 10 Databases, and listed under Nursing in Databases by Subject--and often in nursing courses in Canvas under Library Resources.
Once you have done a search using the important concepts of your research question as search terms, you can limit to research articles by:
1) Going to the link to Show More limit options on the left side of the search results page:
2) Checking the box to limit to Research Article:

Other databases you can search in to try to find relevant articles, depending on your topic, include PubMed, PsycINFO, and Web of Science.
