Nursing: Home

Welcome

The goal of the WVWC School of Nursing is to "prepare graduates to enter the profession of nursing as competent, safe practitioners who demonstrate critical thinking skills, effective communication and possess a sound foundation for graduate study in nursing."  

The WVWC Library supports this goal by providing access to high-quality information resources to support teaching and learning in nursing and other health sciences.  This resource guide is intended to help you navigate the library's available resources for nursing students.

 

Accessing the Library from Off-Campus

Access to the library's subscription resources is limited to students, faculty, and staff of West Virginia Wesleyan College.  However, users are not required to be on campus to use the library resources. 

As of November 2019, off-campus access is now authenticated using OpenAthens. The old proxy login (last name and P number) no longer works. In order to access resources off-campus:

1.  Click on the database of choice.

2.  You should see a page that looks like this:

3.  Select "West Virginia Wesleyan College" as your option.

4.  You should receive a login prompt that looks like this:

5.  Your username will be your full Wesleyan e-mail address (include the @wvwc.edu). Your password should be the same as the one you use to access WebAdvisor or Blackboard.

If you have any problems logging on, call the library front desk (304-473-8013) or email librarian@wvwc.edu for assistance.
