Nursing databases

These databases contain nursing journals. Databases labeled "Best Bet" emphasize the nursing and allied health disciplines and will be the most useful for you. Databases that do not have that label contain journals on general medical-related topics, including nursing.

Nursing eJournals

The following list includes journals related to nursing. It is not a comprehensive list.

interlibrary loan iconYou will need to request full text access to most of these articles through Interlibrary Loan. This is a free service built into our databases; it does take anywhere between 3-10 business days. Plan ahead and give yourself enough time to research, request, receive, and read your articles!

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free way to get books, articles, or other materials not available at CCC Library.  

Many databases index articles, meaning they tell you what is published but do not necessarily link you to the full text due to publisher embargoes. This is common, especially with newer articles. When this happens, request the free full-text of articles using the Request this item through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) link. CCC Library will email you the article in 3-10 days.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar lets you cast a wide net into every discipline of research. Go ahead and use Google Scholar, but remember - never pay for an article online. Get it for free, through CCC Library's Interlibrary loan (ILL) service.

To request an article, first double-check that the article is not available from another database. The CCC Library Catalog is a good place to check!

Once you have determined it is not available at CCC, please fill out our Interlibrary Loan form (below) or contact Articles will be emailed to you in 1-4 days.
