HSLS E-Books in Nursing

The Nursing section of the HSLS Health Sciences E-Books by Subject list contains links to a number of online books of interest to nursing students, nursing school faculty, and clinical nurses. The e-books are offered on several different platforms (publisher interfaces), but they all contain up-to-date information on topics such as clinical nursing skills, nursing diagnosis and care planning, and nursing research.

Popular titles include:

  •  AACN Essentials of Critical Care Nursing
  • Foundations of Nursing Research
  • Fundamental & Advanced Nursing Skills
  • Lippincott’s Nursing Drug Guide
  • Nursing Leadership and Management: Theories, Processes and Practice
  • Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices (AORN)
  • Sparks and Taylor’s Nursing Diagnosis Reference Manual
  • Statistics for Nursing and Allied Health

All HSLS e-books can be accessed via the HSLS e-books subject list or by searching by book title in Pitt Resources Quick Search. Note that some e-book platforms allow only a limited number of concurrent users, so you may on occasion be “turned away” from an e-book. If that happens, try again in a few minutes—typically you’ll be able to access the book then.
