I'm doing a presentation titled "nurses as educators" but I keep getting results for teachers (nurses who advanced their education and began teaching in nursing school), but I'm looking for the nurses role in patient education. Ex: the nurse educates the patient on discharge info or translates medical terminology, teaches health promotion etc. Any help would be appreciated!

HI,

You should be able to fix this by specifically stating patient education.  For example. I tried this search in CINAHL

"patient education"   ---- in the first box and I did use quotes around patient education because then it is read as a phrase.

discharge   --- in the second box as an example you gave me.  As I read the results, I think I could have been more specific if I was needing something more specific and stated perhaps a certain medical problem such as cardiac or transplant recipient.  Once you find something you like, take a look at the subject line and use those terms to revise your search.

I hope this helps. 

Sorry it took us so long to respond.  THe campus was having Internet problems until just now.

Let us know if this does not help you.
