Nursing Resource Center (Gale)

Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition [EBSCO]
An excellent database to use for nursing and general health science articles. Many general medical journals can be found full-text in this database.

Academic Search Premier [EBSCO]
An excellent source for full-text scholarly journal articles from over 8500 journals in all academic subjects.

This version can be limited to full-text only, but you can use Interlibrary Loan to obtain other indexed articles.
