CINAHL, and all of the FIU Libraries' research databases, can be accessed by following the steps described below:

  1. Go to the library homepage.
  2. If you are off campus, click on the "Off-Campus Access" icon located in the upper right corner. Log in using your MyAccounts (email, Blackboard) or library account information. Once you log in, you will be redirected automatically to the library homepage. (If you are on campus, skip to step 3.)
  3. On the library homepage, hover over the "Research Tools" option on the top menu bar, then click on the first option that pops up, "A-Z Databases and Resources List."
  4. Select the first letter of the database you want to access using the tabs at the top of the page, then scroll down until you locate the database on the list. For CINAHL, first select the "C" tab, then scroll down and click on "CINAHL Plus with Full Text."

You can also access CINAHL from the Nursing + Health Sciences LibGuides. To use this option, follow steps 1 and 2 above. However, in step 3, choose "Subject & Research Guides: LibGuides" instead. You will see a list of subjects at the left of the page. Click on "Nursing + Health Sciences." Here, you have two options: (1) click on "All Nursing + Health Sciences Databases & Resources" to open CINAHL from a list of health sciences databases or (2) click on "CINAHL Guide" to open CINAHL from a guide that containts instructions on how to use this database.

For more information on using CINAHL, contact Barbara M. Sorondo, the Health Sciences Librarian.
