Developing and Strengthening Research Skills


CIAC is devoted to sharpening the research skills of nurses and other staff via hand-on workshops that are open to members of the NYU Langone Health community.

  • Monthly hands-on Library Research Skills Workshops that help nurses develop effective literature searches, manage their search results, sign up for alerts on research topics, find electronic books, and learn about other library resources.
