If you want books about nursing theories you can simply search our catalog. We have a variety of titles in both print and ebook. Print books are at Lydon Library on north campus. You can also search our nursing databases for the original article where the theory was originally developed. The best bet for that search is in our Ovid collection.

When you search Ovid, first, make sure you select multi-field search. Second, use the author's name in one box and the theory in another. For example, you would type this in the search box to find articles about Jean Watson's theory of caring:

This should take you to any article that author has written about their theory. Check out the videos linked below for more examples.
