When you search the Web with Google, Wikipedia will often be your first hit. Wikipedia is useful for finding background information. However, it is NOT an acceptable source for college level research.
In the box below you will find great websites for nursing history. If you do your own web surfing and find a "good" website, be sure to look at it critically before using it in your paper. Take a look at the CLIP (Cooperative Library Instruction Project) tutorial about evaluating websites.
