CINAHL Limiters

Common limiters to use are:

  • Full Text

  • Peer Reviewed

  • Published date

Other limiters that can be helpful when you get a lot of results include:

  • author is a nurse

  • nursing journal subset

NOTE: using these limiters can limit your results too much. You may miss some good articles, so use with caution.
