Abstract

Information literacy has been identified by the University of Southern Queensland as an essential graduate quality. It has also been identified in the nursing literature as a requirement for nursing profession. Data were collected from Toowoomba and Fraser Coast campuses using a questionnaire to assess first-year nursing students' information literacy skills prior to and after information literacy instruction. The findings indicate that embedding such instruction into nursing courses is beneficial.
