Resources for School Nurses, go to ERIC via Ezproxy to have access to Cressman Library subscriptions.
Note about searching databases that the library does not subscribe to. Databases that the library does not subscribe to will often index the very same journals that the library does subscribe to and of course others that the library doesn't.
Either way, you may find yourself on a site like Wiley or Science Direct after searching PubMed, Google Scholar, Semantic Scholar or Ingenta Connect and discovering free or open access content there.
If you are on campus, you will be able to continue your search and be able to access free or open access articles there, plus what the library subscribes to. If you are off campus, though, you will need to use the links that the library provides for sites like Wiley, Science Direct, and other similar databases listed on this page in order to be able to retrieve articles that we have a subscription for.

What about CINAHL?

CINAHL uses its own thesaurus terms, but they are related to MeSH headings.
