This guide will help you find relevant databases, books, journals, websites and specialist resources for your research in nursing. This guide supports the postgraduate nursing programme taught from University of Otago Christchurch, but is is mainly intended for Otago and Southland-based students.
Please explore the tabs along the top for tips on finding specific types of resources. You can also make an appointment to see us, your subject specialist librarians, if you'd like some support with your research. The guide is always a work in progress, so I welcome suggestions for additional content.
To celebrate the ongoing contribution of nurses, Elsevier Health is proud to launch its new ‘Resource for Nurses’ page, bringing together insights and videos that support:
• Self-care & Well-being: Cultivating and maintaining optimal mental health and physical well-being
• Recognition: Exploring the evolving role of nurses
• Professional Development: Support practice ready, future ready nurses
Each month Elsevier will add new content to the page including:
• Key topics affecting Nurses.
• Journal articles and insights
• Self-care & well-being videos
