You can limit your search to just Nursing journals in a few of our databases.  Use the Nursing Subject Guide to access the nursing databases.  


For example when you access CINAHL from the library's database page, you will see an advanced search screen with several options for limiting your search.  Select "Core Nursing" and "Nursing."  Use the Ctrl key on your keyboard to select both at the same time.


In the ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health database, you have to limit in a different way.  In this case you would search for Nurs* (nurse, nurses, nursing) in the publication title and you would combine it with AND and your drug name. Here is an example of what that would look like:

There is also a Nursing Journals filter in PubMed. When you click on the link to PubMed from our databases listing, enter your drug name in the box.  Then click search.  This will bring you to the list of results with options for filtering on the left side of the page. The Journal Categories filter is not shown on the default search.  You will need to click the "show more filters" link and then select Nursing Journals.  



You can also limit to Nursing in Scopus.  Do a search for your drug name in this database.  Then on the result page you will see a list of limiters on the left side of the page.  Under Subject Area select Nursing.
