Need to Restrict your Articles to those Written by a Nurse?

There is a limiter in CINAHL that will allow you to access only those articles written by nurses.

First, what is a Limiter? “Limiters let you narrow the focus of your search so that the information retrieved from the databases you search is limited according to the values you select.”

So to get to those articles that have been authored by nurses follow the instructions below:

1. Perform your search in CINAHL

2. Go to the page to active your limits by clicking on the Show More link in the left column under the date.






3. Check the boxes next to “First Author is Nurse” and “Any Author is Nurse

Nurse author






4. Click the Search button at the top or bottom of the page.

That’s all there is to it. Easy peasy.
