1) Click on advanced search.


2) Several search options will appear.  In the box titled Discipline, select the box for "nursing."



3) Modify the Content type options to include only certain formats if needed.



4) Search for information by using primary source search terms (last name, first name), in addition to by title, author, publication, subject, etc.  If you are uncertain where to begin, try a few different search term combinations, such as "music therapy" and "case study."  Then refine and clarify your search terms until you find an article that contains all of the stated requirements.
