Welcome to the research guide designed especially for students in the RN-to-BSN online program. Information posted here will be aimed at answering your most frequent questions your library gets from students in your program, so you should check here first if you get stuck doing research for an assignment. Of course, no guide can answer all your questions, so feel free to contact a reference librarian noted in the Contact/Need Help? page or your Health Sciences Librarian, Hanna Schmillen, directly; you can find her contact information in the box to the bottom left. Hanna will also post relevant material and information on this guide to help you through your assignments so be on the look out!
