Spirituality and Nursing: JOURNALS and ARTICLES

Can be used for NUR250 to complete assignment dealing with the nursing process and spiritual interventions for patients.


SEARCH WITHIN this journal or publication is a feature that is similar in many databases.

  • Perform a basic search by adding your term to the journal title
  • Perform an advanced search by adding terms in multiple search boxes
  • Choose where to search for your terms... author, subject, text, etc.


  • Journals : scholarly, academic, peer-reviewed
  • Popular magazines and newspapers
  • Trade or professional interest


  • Some publishers restrict full text publication for 12 months
  • If not full text try FIND IT or REQUEST AN ARTICLE


  • As you do research keep track of bibliographic information
  • One source of online help is Son of Citation
  • DOI (Digital Object Identifiers) are available for articles from online journals. This keeps the url of the article fixed. The DOI will continue to direct the user to the article when it is moved. A DOI lookup form is available.

Periodicals: Click on the journal title below and then search within that individual journal. For example, search for "patient spirituality" in the journal "Holistic Nursing Practice"

Articles: Just a few of many available! Click on the title, read the abstract, notice the subject headings to help you search for similar articles in the suggested databases. The blue circle link near the title will show you an (imperfect) APA citation.
