    The BSN Research Guide is intended to create a pathway to research tools and resources to assist you with your projects and assignments in the BSN program. 

    Students and professionals in nursing and healthcare need to understand how to conduct research. Research also helps you respond to the changes in the healthcare environment we are definitely in a state of change, and you want to be sure you have access to relevant information!

    Many research resources and tools are available to GC students in the library; knowing which resources are available for your program or course and how to use the resources can sometimes be overwhelming. The guide will help you navigate library resources whether you are an online student, dual credit, hybrid student, or attending in-person.

    In this guide you will find:

    Nursing & Allied Health Databases


    You will access databases and journals to find articles and clinical information on nursing research.

    Note about nursing journals: be sure to read the nursing journal descriptions; some journals under the Nursing Journals tab are NOT accessible off-campus. 

    This list is not conclusive. Please search our A to Z Database List for additional sources.
