Evidence Based Nursing: APA Citation

APA style -- Videos

A neat video explaining basics of APA style from USF

APA style Formatting

APA intro

In the Nursing department, typically APA style is used unless you publish in a particular medical journal where the style is defined. Below you will find a list of resources on APA style. I show many of these in my face-to-face classes as the tutorials are extremely comprehensive. Remember, I also do APA classes during Research Clinics (April and October) but you can also set up an appointment with me if you need help any time. 

Don't forget, anyone of the librarians at the Research Help Desk can also help you with your APA style questions.
