During 2012 the Library conducted a survey of the information-seeking behavior of nurses, including a large group of newly hired, recent nursing graduates, and close to 100 current nursing staff. We developed our survey tool based on questions found in the literature. The responses showed the most popular sources of information for both new hires and current nurses, and the systemic issues nurses face on the ward in accessing information. Results revealed similarities and differences between the two nursing groups, and offer an interesting comparative to findings from the literature.
