An effective research question for evidence-based nursing:
For example: "What is the impact of an educational program on violence in the workplace in an emergency department setting?"
Once you have written your research question, use CINAHL to find research articles. CINAHL (Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature) is the premier nursing database. It indexes journal articles, book chapters, dissertations, and more.
After completing your search for articles in one of the library's databases, you'll see several options for accessing the full text. View this guide for help with accessing the full text of an article.
Using AND narrows your search. Using OR expands your search. (put OR terms on the same line).
If one of your search terms is an abbreviation (for example, CHF), use the full term (congestive heart failure) instead.
Be patient! Using CINAHL effectively takes practice and time.
