About the repository
Our Mission - Providing knowledge resources to help nurses advance patient care
The Virginia Henderson International Nursing Library - online research repository is committed to providing knowledge resources to help advance nurses and patient care. The repository is dedicated to bringing the latest research on nursing knowledge important to all nurses – clinicians, researchers, educators and students.
Through the repository, individuals will have access to a full-text search of research-related submissions such as study abstracts, conference abstracts, dissertations, full-text articles*, videos and audio files. In addition, researchers may be contacted for more information about how to obtain full-text versions of their study. The repository is operating within an improved environment making it much easier for researchers to post up-to-date research findings. It features a streamlined submission process and contact information to connect with other nurses who have similar research interests.
