Welcome to the FSU Ort Library Nursing & Health Services Resource Guide! This online guide is developed specifically for those doing research in Nursing. Using the tabs above, you will find a recommended list of resources which encompasses electronic databases, e-journals and books and selected Internet resources. Be sure to scroll down on each page!

The guide lists only resources that deal primarily with nursing and health-related topics. 

Because nursing includes many disciplines such as biology, psychology, sociology, education, and business management you may need to consult resources in those fields also.
