Nursing 404 Research Guide

In preparation for the Nursing 404 Library Session, please review this short guide. Reviewing all three sections of this guide should take around 30 minutes. If you are already familiar with APA format and Zotero, feel free to skip / skim over that section.

In order to find clinical research for this class, you'll need to understand how to Formulate a QuestionSelect a DatabaseGenerate Search TermsCreate a Search Strategy, and Cite Your Sources. You will be creating a question (in PICOT format), and the library prep guide and in-class session will give you the chance to do the rest. 

In our in-class session, you will be asked to use your PICOT question to:

  • extract search terms
  • come up with alternative keywords / subject headings
  • run your search in a database
  • create a citation in APA format

We’ll be jumping right into it, so make sure you review this guide in it’s entirety so you are prepared for the lab!

For additional help, see our Searching for Health Sciences Literature guide.
