CINAHL Nursing & Allied Health: FULL TEXT Articles  for your phone or tablet 


Use the EBSCO mobile app to set up your account access.  The downloadable EBSCO APP sends a text link to your phone. This EBSCO code sent to your phone is good only for 24 hours.  Once you receive the code, you log into EBSCO online using the code and set up your account online. Instructions are under the MOBILE APPS tab. If you do not create an account and save your files to the My Folder within an account, the active server pages disappear.  Saving the Permalink in a WORD file overcomes only one issue: finding the article. Once you have an EBSCO account, it is much easier to save articles in your folder, read them online and download the bibliographic data for your report or research project.



NSULA students can access a number of EBSCO’s unique research articles and e-books on their tablet or phone such as:   Cinahl Nursing & Allied Health (Full-Text), AltHealthwatch, Abstracts in Social Gerontology, Biological Abstracts, EBSCO e-Book Collection, Health e-Books, Health Source: Nursing & Academic Collection, Medline, Science e-Books, Family Studies Abstract, Human Resources Abstracts, PsychInfo, Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection, SocIndex (Sociology) Full-Text, Violence & Abuse Abstracts, Science Reference Center, Agricola (Nutrition), Biological Abstracts (Biology & Nutrition) .

CINAHL NURSING & Allied Health:  FULL TEXT -- MyFolders Account


Within Cinahl (or other EBSCO databases like AltHealthWatch or e-Books), you may create a MyFolder account within that database to save your articles for projects, papers or assignments.  This allows you to save articles and e-books to FOLDERS. Keep your login and password safe.  The librarian does not have access to this information.
