I am available to meet with you online to assist with research. To schedule an appointment please use the "Schedule Appointment" button above.

Getting Started

When doing research in nursing there are a variety of sources available to you.  The first step is selecting a topic and figuring out what types of sources of information you will need to use for your research.

If you need scholarly and/or peer reviewed articles, you will want to start with a database. If you need background information, a good starting point would be a subject encyclopedia. 

If you need help figuring out where to begin you may always contact me via email at
