Guest post: Studying Nursing or Health and Social Care? This could be the resource for you!


In the second of our guest posts, Dawn Grundy, Subject Librarian for Health and Human Sciences, tells us about Royal College of Nursing Journals, and how they could be of benefit if you are studying with this area:

As part of your studies at University it’s expected that you will have to research subjects for your assignments. This involves using a search tool such as Discover@Bolton.

Keeping up to date with the latest information in your sector is essential whether you need to revalidate or maintain awareness of latest best practice in your specialist field.

The Royal College of Nursing journals package contains 10 publications designed to meet the needs of today’s nursing professional. Titles include:

  • Nursing Standard
  • Cancer Nursing Practice
  • Emergency Nurse
  • Learning Disability Practice
  • Mental Health Practice
  • Nursing Children and Young People
  • Nursing Management
  • Nurse Researcher
  • Nursing Older People
  • Primary Health Care

Access is available from January 2015 to onwards via Discover@Bolton, the link to the RCN package on the Health Subject Resources page or directly by title via the eJournals portal. It’s also listed as a recommended resource on the vast majority of Reading Lists Online for Nursing and Health and Social Care. You may also be able to access full-text articles from the archive prior to January 2015, search for the individual journal title on the eJournals portal for details.

For further information, speak to the staff at the Help Desk in the Library or contact the Health Librarian Dawn Grundy.
