Ashland University Library sources for Nursing students and faculty.

Electronic Reserves

Your professors may place articles and other documents in Electronic Reserves. They will need to provide you with a password to access the articles. The articles are accessible 24/7. 

DVDs and other items may be placed in Library Reserves and have a restricted borrowing period. They may be checked out during regular library hours.


Learning Express Library Practice Exams for Nursing

This subscription database provides instantly scored licensing, certification, and aptitude practice tests, online career preparation, and vital information for a wide variety of occupations, including nurisng. Practice tests include instant diagnostic score reports that help users target those skill areas needing the most attention.  Work is stored in “My Center,” allowing you to do practice tests in multiple sittings.

To use the LearningExpress Library 3.0, open the database and register for a new individual account.  Accounts will not carry over from the former Learning Express Library platform.  The e-mail address you give will be your user name.

Medical Pronunciations

Unsure of how to pronounce medical terms? Just use this tool from the Merck Manuals Online Medical Library.  You will need audio capability on your computer to use this site.  No new page will display when you click on a word. Just wait a second and you will hear the pronunciation of the term on your speakers or headphones.
