Librarians' Top Picks: Nursing/Medicine Specific Databases

These full-text databases are meant specifically for those looking up articles about Health & Medicine.

Also Try: Popular General Databases

These databases provide access to full text articles in many areas of study, including that of nursing and evidence-based practice.

Why use the databases?

Just doing a Google search probably won't be good enough for your research. The articles found through library databases are guaranteed to be scholarly, saving you the extra step of making sure your sources are valid. See our handout [pdf] of Library Databases vs. Google for more information.


We have access (both print and electronic) to many evidence-based nursing related journals. For a list by subject area, see Serial Solutions. TIP: You can search subdisciplines (like "geriatrics" or "substance abuse disorders") for related information by searching the Subject Headings in Health & Biological Sciences for a broad topic overview.
