CINAHL Nursing and Allied Health Database Upgrade.

The health science database CINAHL Plus with Full Text from EBSCOhost has been a favorite of students in the College of Health for years.  Recently the Clayton State University Library opted to upgrade our CINAHL subscription to the “Complete” version to help meet the research needs of Clayton State students and faculty, particularly those in the health sciences programs.

The curriculum requirements for students in the College of Health include learning to find current, peer reviewed, journal articles for projects, papers, and real-world decision making.  One example is NURS 4100: Nursing Research, a required course for all Nursing majors.  NURS 4100 students conduct literature reviews to address a research question relevant to nursing.  At the end of the semester they share their findings as a poster presentation. Recent, peer reviewed journal articles provide the foundation for their research.

Students in HCMG 4901: Applied Research work together in teams to address real-world problems for health administrators in the Atlanta area.  The need for quality peer-reviewed journal articles to support a team’s recommendations is urgent considering the fact that their work could have real implications for real people.
