The new Rittenhouse R2 Digital Library collection is a database of full-text e-books for nursing, medicine, and allied health. Content includes titles from STM (scientific, technical, and medical) publishers with emphasis on Doody's core titles and Brandon Hill titles. The R2 interface is optimized for the health sciences with features including integrated drug name, topic, and disease indices, and pass-through linking to PubMed and MeSH searching.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice, Nurse Anesthesia (BSN-DNP) and the Post-MSN Doctor of Nursing Practice programs will be starting soon. View our book list for the DNP program which includes print and electronic titles now available in the library.
