New information and discoveries can quickly make books or articles outdated. Nursing is a field where information can become outdated quickly as new discoveries are made, so it’s a good idea to look for sources published in the last few years.

Ask yourself these questions:
  • When was the information published or posted?
  • Has the information been revised or updated?
  • Does my topic require current information, or will older sources work well?
