What is the CEU Source Type limiter?

When using EBSCOhost, with the CINAHL databases, the following continuing education credits may be available to you.

  • CEs via Journal Article – Use the publication type limiter to limit your results to “CEU.” This limit, in the CINAHL products (CINAHL and CINAHL with Full-text), will find all CE resources and requirements within journal articles; nurses can obtain CE credits by following the procedures documented in the article. This might include reading the article, taking a test, and perhaps making a payment. When this limit is used in the CINAHL Plus products (CINAHL Plus and CINAHL Plus with Full-text), then your results will include all CEs via Journal Article and CE Modules (see #2 below).

  • CE Modules – Use the CE Module limiter to limit your results to only CE modules produced by CINAHL Information Systems. These type of CE Modules are included in CINAHL Plus and CINAHL Plus with Full-text databases. These CE modules are included within your purchase of the CINAHL Plus products. You can identify these items in a result list by the presence of "--CE Module" at the end of the link in the result list (also in the citation). Additional instructions on how to obtain CE unit credits are provided when you follow the link and access the CINAHL Continuing Education Modules.
