This guide is designed to help you complete the care plan and pathophysiology research paper in Nursing 120.

4. Find Sources

Once you've analyzed your topic and brainstormed keywords, try searching the health science databases below for potential sources.  Remember you need 3 peer-reviewed professional journal articles published in the last 5 years. 1 must be from a medical journal and 2 must be from nursing journals.

The databases listed below are full of nursing and medical journals. See the link on the side menu of the screen called "List of Nursing Journals" for a list of journal titles that are specifically nursing journals. This is not all the nursing journals, you can also search the database and locate nursing journals on your own (or ask a librarian for search tips to find nursing journals).

If your keywords aren't working, ask a librarian for help!
