How do I find information on a nursing theorist or theory?
Last Updated: May 15, 2023     Views: 355

To search for a nursing theorist or theory, you can start in the CINAHL Complete database.

To find CINAHL, click on the Research Databases link on the library homepage.

Click on the letter C and choose CINAHL Complete.

Use the Advanced Search feature. In the first search box, enter the theorist’s name or the name of the theory. Select SU Subject from the drop-down list to the right.

If you search for the name, you may not get any results, but the database will suggest you “Use SmartText Searching.” Click on that to get results.
