N7900 - Theoretical Foundations for Advanced Practice Nurses
For your Nursing Theorists paper you will need to focus on print sources and not electronic internet databases. We have many books here in the library that should be used for your research. They are located in the library and can be found by using GILFind, our online catalog. After searching for appropriate titles, conduct a search for your nurse of choice. If there is a book about or by your nurse, you will also find it in GIL. After locating a book citation, you may find it on the shelf. Some nurses, Florence Nightingale for example, have biographies, others do not. Perhaps your nurse has published and her texts are in the library.
1. In GILFind, do a KEYWORD SEARCH with your nurse as a ‘subject.’
2. In GILFind, do a KEYWORD SEARCH with your nurse as an ‘author name.’
Do titles written by your nurse offer biographical information or just a background on their theories?
Other schools have created nursing theorists research guides. Have a look at them here:
