The Nursing & Allied Health Database is a comprehensive resource for students, instructors, researchers, and healthcare professionals.
Whether it’s supporting a clinical research study or providing faculty with instructional multimedia content to help students connect theory to practice, librarians rely on the Nursing & Allied Health Database for its diverse mix of scholarly literature, clinical training videos, reference materials, and evidence-based resources, including dissertations and systematic reviews. Specifically, while other providers tend to focus solely on the information needs of professionals, the Nursing & Allied Health Database is best used for those preparing for a career in healthcare, teaching patient care, or engaged in nursing research.
By going beyond journals and taking a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to subject coverage, this database is uniquely suited for students, instructors, researchers, and healthcare professionals.
Ongoing full-text access to high impact nursing publications including Journal of Nursing Scholarship, Journal of Emergency Nursing, and Nursing Standard. Core nursing journal coverage is augmented with elite medical publications such as The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet and is easily linked to other required content. Compared to other providers, ProQuest has shorter embargoes and more full-text content.
Supports end user need for diverse content with thousands of full-text dissertations unique to ProQuest covering many areas including nursing, mental health, public health, and topics related to the delivery of patient care.
ProQuest amasses summary journals, conference proceedings, trade journals, books, and more into a single cross-searchable collection. These primary, secondary, and tertiary content sources cover the spectrum of nursing scholarship and give all users from undergraduates and faculty to clinicians and practitioners easy access to relevant content.
ProQuest collaborates with other information service providers to ensure that no matter where a researcher starts, connecting with ProQuest content is simple and seamless. In addition to The Summon® Service from ProQuest, ProQuest content is discoverable through OCLC WorldCat, Ex Libris Primo Central, PubMed, and Google Scholar. Plus, through the ebooks tab on the ProQuest search results page, researchers can cross-search their organization's ProQuest ebook holdings (if available) alongside their ProQuest platform database content.
Video content is a great support tool for nursing students and instructors before entering a clinical environment. Prepping to administer patient medication or performing a geriatric assessment is a bit easier when healthcare providers have seen it done before. The Nursing and Allied Health Database includes over 1,200 video clips from MedCom covering important topics such as healthcare safety, emergency planning, checking vital signs, and many more. All MedCom video clips on the ProQuest platform are expertly indexed with summary abstracts so they are seen in relevant search results right away.
Access to evidence-based resources is as important as ever, which is why ProQuest includes thousands of evidence-based articles (systematic reviews and meta-analysis) and clinical trial records, not to mention expert opinions and findings from cohort and experimental studies.
