The Nursing Standards LibGuide : A Road Map to Key Nursing Resources

If you are charged with updating Nursing Care Policies, this may be a good place to start your research.

The Nursing Standards LibGuide pulls together some of the most-often used resources for developing and updating Nursing Standards, Practices, Policies and Procedures.  

As Your Librarian, I have been working with the several Standards Teams for more than 15 years.    I developed this tool to make it easier to find up-to-date, evidence-based info needed for Standards.   Consider it a Road Map to key resources for Nursing Standards. 

Tabs include : 
•    Nursing Procedures ebooks / books (Nursing Reference Center, Lippincott Manuals, etc)
•    Drug Info
•    Bright Ideas (Why recreate the wheel? IHI, Advisory Board, etc.)
•    Literature Review (Medline, CINAHL, and other journal indexes, and Guidelines)
•    Getting to Full-text
•    Citing Sources
•    Policies (Affinity, Ministry)
•    Regulatory & Government (CMS, WI Board of Nursing, etc.)
•    Access to your Ministry Librarians
