Nursing: Home

A subject guide for nursing.

Welcome to the Nursing library pages!

Here you'll find lots of information on how to find books and journal articles for your assignments, how to reference, and how to get help when you get stuck.

If you can't find what you need here or get stuck, use the contact information on the right of this page to get in touch with the library's Human and Health Sciences subject team.  We'll get back to you as soon as we can.

Royal Marsden Manual

The Royal Marsden Manual provides regularly updated information on best practice with clinical-based evidence procedures.  It is available in two formats - paper versions stocked in the library, and electronic access via the link below.

Royal College of Nursing journals

The Library subscribes to a number of RCN titles in print and you can find these on our shelves. The RCN also provides a large collection of selected articles from all its publication online. However, the precise content of this collection regularly changes and for this reason we can’t provide access to the online content via Summon.  All titles require University network login.

UPDATE: our subscriptions have changed.  Please see below.
You can search through and access our RCN subscriptions, on or off campus by clicking hereThe following are the titles we currently subscribe to:

Learning Disability Practice

Nursing Children and Young People (formally Paediatric Nursing)

Nurse Researcher

Specialist journal resources

You can find loads on Summon, but as nursing students, you are expected to get used to searching individual resources separately.  The ones listed below are some of the key resources you'll want to use, but don't be afraid to try ones listed on other health subject guides if they are more specific to your topic (e.g. operating department practice or midwifery).

For a full list of databases see our A-Z list of electronic resources.

The list of which journals we subscribe to is available through our A-Z journal list
