Answer

To locate articles in the CINAHL Plus with Full Text database that contain CEUs (Continuing Education Units)

Go to the library homepage www.library.wayne.edu 

Under Quicklinks at the left, select the Article Databases tab, then select the letter C

Then, go down this list of “C” titled databases, and select CINAHL Plus with Full Text by clicking on this title (or, you can select the pull down menu under "By Subject Area", choose Nursing, and then click on CINAHL Plus with Full Text).

You will then enter CINAHL, and you will see the Basic Search screen.

Type your keywords into the search box for your search topic (for example: diabetes and therapy)

From the Limit your results area below the search box, do the following:

Published Date from:  enter the date range you would like for your search results

Publication Type:  select CEU (by using the down arrow)

Also select English Language by clicking the box

Click Search to perform the search.

By selecting the CEU limit, you will limit the articles you retrieve to those that contain exercises, readings and/or quizzes which will enable you to earn CEUs (Continuing Education Units) in nursing. In each article citation, click either “PDF Full Text” or “360 Link to Full Text” to open an article (unless WSU does not have access to an article, then you can follow the steps to order it). Once in the full text of an article, just follow the procedures or instructions within each article to obtain information about the process for obtaining CEU credit.
