Nursing Certification Titles at the Library

September 6, 2016

Starting in January of 2016 the Graff Medical and Scientific Library partnered with Clinical Practice and Education to purchase, and make available, a variety of nursing certification titles to help with City of Hope’s Magnet® Journey.

As part of this partnership, library staff members helped to make nurses aware of these titles by tabling on March 17 as part of our Certified Nurses Day celebration with other nursing staff at a variety of locations on campus. The resources can be browsed electronically through the nursing certification LibGuide or the library catalog.

A couple of titles that will be of interest to the nursing staff at City of Hope are our electronic copies of both the Core Curriculum for Oncology Nursing and the Study Guide for the Core Curriculum for Oncology Nursing. These resources can be accessed from any workstation on the City of Hope network.

Nurses studying for the certification exam can get access from home to the Core Curriculum text by contacting Brian Chambers at ext. 68614 for a ClinicalKey Nursing remote login account.

Need more information about nursing certification resources at the library or have any questions? Please contact us at library@coh.org or ext. 68497.

Question of the Month: How do I access SciFinder?

In January, we received two inquires about accessing SciFinder. Registration is required for using SciFinder. Register here.

SciFinder is a tool produced and maintained by the Chemical Abstract Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society. Learn more about SciFinder by perusing the handouts and tutorials available here.
