Searching Ovid: Nursing Database

Getting Full Text in Ovid Nursing Database

Finding the full text of articles from within databases is not a reliable process. If these steps do not work, check out our Finding Full Text guide, or contact us for assistance.

If a reference has the Article Link icon next to it, you will usually be able to get the full text of the reference. You will find the Article Link icon on the right hand side of the reference details on the list of results, click on it to access the link to the document via the library.

You can click on the ‘X’ or the arrow to close the left side menu, or wait a few seconds for it to close itself:
