Searching the Nursing Research Literature

This material includes self-learning demonstrations on how to effectively search four databases located on the Mount Carmel Health Sciences Library Nursing Resources page.

Demonstrations Include:

  • Formulating a P.I.C.O.(T.) question based on the elements to develop a focused, “searchable” nursing topic
  • Choosing effective P.I.C.O.(T.) terms to search and retrieve research literature including the use of CINAHL Headings and MeSH terms
  • Searching CINAHL using Advanced Search features including Full-Text Finder to locate Peer-Reviewed articles in PDF format
  • Searching other databases: ClinicalKey for Nursing, Lippincott Advisor (Health Library), and PubMed’s Clinical Queries to find research articles using effective keyword searches
