Back to School? Your First Assignment: Nursing Theories

Getting your BSN?  One of your first assignments is typically a paper about nursing theorists or your nursing philosophy. To get you off to a good start, here are links to automatic searches in CINAHL Complete, using CINAHL subject terms, for searches frequently performed  by students beginning their BSN programs.  Search on each topic singly or combine them with keywords in the Search History/Alerts section in the CINAHL results screen.

NOTE: these will only search CINAHL if you are using a HonorHealth campus computer, or you are using HonorHealth library resources via an Athens account.
