Nursing: Finding articles

What are journals and why are they important?

As a student in higher education your tutors will be looking for evidence that you have used a wide range of resources in your studies.  Journals are one such resource.  They can provide up to date, specialised information on topics which are not always found in books.  There are two main types of journal.

Academic Journals for example - 
Journal of advanced nursing

Trade, general and professional magazines for example -
Nursing Times
