Limits – apply after your search results
Tip: Choose only a few limits from different categories at one time since the computer will AND them with your topic and results may decrease rapidly (sometimes to zero!). It's easier to add another limit than take one away.
Nurse Authors - Two methods to identify articles with a nurse author. Try both and see the different search results you might get.
One option is to limit your search results to a nurse author:
The written by a nurse limiter applies to records from 2009 and forward. Credentials include RN, BSN, MSN, or appropriate degree. As this limiter pertains to non-U.S. journals, the credentials include licensed nurse or appropriate nursing degree in the particular country.
Another option is to use Field Searching as a part of your search strategy. Use the Advanced Search, truncate (nurs*) and change the "Select a Field" drop box to "AF Author Affiliation." This may narrow the search to nursing authors.
