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. Key words: Information literacy instruction, embedding, problem solving, confidence, information access skills.
