Nursing links and library resources

What is this?

This is a Subject Guide.

The Library has Subject Guides for most of the programs at KPU.

In these guides, librarians have brought together the best library and web resources to research in your area of study.

Use the grey tabs to find information and links to different resources.

If you still need help after looking at these resources, Ask A Librarian or book an appointment with me.

First steps

You can use Summon (search box below) to search most of the Library's collection at once.
