You may wonder: are there tools to help with citation and references?
Yes: EndNote, RefWorks, Zotero and Mendeley are available for use by current NU faculty, staff, and students. These tools can help you collect and manage your references, and auto-format citations and bibliographies in your papers.
Most but not all nursing research papers use the APA (American Psychological Association) Style Guide for citing sources.
