Nursing Research Guide

Your guide to library research.

Welcome to the Nursing Research Guide!


This Guide has been arranged to help you with your Research needs. Any research question starts with gathering background information on your topic. Find background information in books, encyclopedias, and reputable websites. After you have identified your topic you may need to find journal literature on that topic.  Use one of our many databases geared towards health care information. After you have gathered your research, evaluate the authority, credibility and importance of the information for your assignment.
All collections are held at the Dayton Memorial Library or online.
If you need research help, make an appointment with Kimberly Kemp, Librarian for the Loretto Heights School of Nursing, see her information on the right side of this page.
