We have found that it works best to do a keyword search rather than searching with subject headings (default search mode in CINAHL). A keyword search looks for the words, exactly as entered, in the title or abstract. The asterisk (*) is a wildcard for alternate word endings (nurs* = nurse, nurses, nursing, etc.).
Follow these steps to find articles on this topic:
- Connect to CINAHL from the Library's home page (in the Find by Name box)
- Remove the check box from Suggest Subject Terms (above the search box)
- Paste this in the search box:
(postmodern* or post modern*) and nurs*
- Click Search
These 2 articles look good, even if they are a little old.
