Thanks to Meghan Kelly from Ludden Library at Laramie County Community College.  Our guide is based on her excellent work.

How To Use This Guide

Now you are in a nursing class and the instructor wants you to write a paper, using quality, evidence-based resources.  You do not know what evidence-based resources are, but you are pretty sure you are not supposed to use Google or Bing to find them.  What do you do?   By using this guide, you will quickly learn to find just the sources you need (and get an "A" on that paper!).

This guide is designed to provide you with several avenues for completing your research project in nursing.  We have placed the pages in, what we think is, a logical order, but if you want to jump into a topic without working through the earlier pages, you should be able to successfully do that.

Remember, whenever you cannot understand something or a resource is not working, please get in touch with us.  We are here to help you.
