Using the Web for Nursing Information

Dr ComputerThe world wide web contains valuable information about nursing.  There are many ways that you can search the web for trustworthy information. If you restrict your searches to government or education sites you will be more likely to access unbiased high-quality information.

Using the search engines on this page will increase the likelihood of finding information worth including in your paper. Nonetheless, be aware that when using information from the Internet you will need to act as the reviewer since there are few rules governing what can be published there.
