Nursing Students

We would like to welcome all nurses to the section of the Health Sciences Library website that is Just For You. We want your library experience to be productive and fruitful, and to that end we have gathered some of the items we think will be helpful to you on this page. We welcome suggestions and comments, and we hope to meet all of you at least once on your educational path, whether in person or virtually. For librarian assistance, please email or call us at 816-235-1880.

Handheld Resources

If you have a mobile device, they can be quite useful on the floor, especially for drug information. Through the library you have access to free downloads of either Micromedex or Clinical Pharmacology for the devices. Directions for getting either of these and a listing of other handheld resources that might be useful, can be found on this page.

Finding Journal Articles

To find nursing articles, you need to do a search in CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature). To get help on how to do a search in the databases, go to this page.


Distance or Online Students

Although we may not get to meet all of you, we do want you to feel that the library is just as accessible to you as it is to your on campus classmates. To that end we offer distance and online students free delivery of any article they need, even if it is located in the Health Science Library. And while we don't offer book delivery, we do have a wonderful selection of online books for use.
