First, you might want to try searching in the CINAHL Complete database.  Go to the Library's homepage at gmercyu.edu/library and scroll down to Databases by Subject Area.  Under the heading Nursing/Allied Health, click on the database CINAHL Complete.

Once you are in CINAHL Complete, click on CINAHL Headings at the top of the screen.  Type in the name of your nursing theorist (last name, first name) and click Browse.  The name of nursing theorist's model should appear below.  Click on New Search at the top of the screen and then type in the name of the nursing model in the first search box and click search. 

The Library also has many books on the nursing theorists with chapters on specific nursing models.  On the Library's homepage, click on the Online Catalog link.  Type in the name of the nursing model (that you found in CINAHL) or the name of the theorist (last name, first name) and click search.   Be sure to write down the call number for the book you want in order to find it on the shelf.

Please ask the librarians at the Reference Desk or give us a call at 215-646-7300 ext. 21484 if you have any questions.
