Nurses – do you know about the Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-Repository?
This open-access digital academic and clinical scholarship service is solely dedicated to sharing works created by nurses. The repository offers full text search retrieval, and includes dissertations, theses, study reports, conference papers, committee reports, faculty-created learning objects, presentation slides, conference papers, and pre- and post-print journal articles, as well as more than 38,000 study and conference abstracts.
Nurses – you are invited to submit research-related or evidence-based practice work authored by a single nurse, multiple nurses, or a collaborative group that includes a nurse. There is no fee to submit, and authors retain copyright to their materials, maintaining control of their work via a self-archiving mechanism.
The Health Sciences Library also provides a link to the Henderson Repository in our list of Biomedical Databases
