How to Search CINAHL at Kirkwood

If you do not find the research you need in CINAHL, try searching other nursing databases such as OVID, Health Reference Center Academic, Health Source: Nursing Academic Edition, PubMed and Science Direct. While not exactly the same as CINAHL, they will have most of the same features in a slightly different format.
