Nursing: Home


Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. Nursing includes the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people. Advocacy, promotion of a safe environment, research, participation in shaping health policy and in patient and health systems management, and education are also key nursing roles. (ICN, 2002).


This research guide provides a curated set of research materials in Nursing. While this is a great place to start your research journey, please explore our numerous other resources provided by the Ocean County College Library.
