Nursing Research Guide: Citing Sources

How to Cite your work

All nursing courses use APA documentation. See the link below for more information on citing your sources. The second link directs you to CCC's guide to APA citations, including templates and examples.

Citing and Evaluating Sources


NoodleBib is an effective tool for creating works cited pages for APA and MLA. If you have any questions about the accuracy of your citations, please contact the reference desk. You will need to create an account before accessing NoodleBib.

APA template for nursing students

You should use CCC's Microsoft Word APA template for nursing students when writing your research assignments. The template features placeholder headings on the title page and pre-formatted spacing and pagination. Simply follow the directions for inserting your paper's information and do not change the document's formatting. Consider using NoodleBib to copy and paste your References page when you are finished.
