Please Note: Froedtert Health has implemented a new security protocol which has resulted in the degradation of on-campus access to MCW Libraries' electronic resources. Users on the Froedtert network must sign in via OpenAthens when attempting to access electronic library resources (including UpToDate, VisualDx, etc.). MCW Libraries is aware of this change and is working to provide a permanent access solution. If you have MCW credentials, please sign in via MCW employees and students when prompted. If you are a Froedtert employee, click here to register for an OpenAthens account or view more information.

Nursing Resources: Books, Journals and Articles

Please note that when MCW, Froedtert Health, and Children's Wisconsin staff are on the MCW, Froedtert Health, or Children's Wisconsin network, they can access MCW Libraries resources via the library's homepage.

For access to MCW Libraries resources outside the MCW, Froedtert Health, and Children's Wisconsin network, please refer to our OpenAthens guide.
