Library Resources for Nursing PhD Students: Writing Papers

This guide provides information on how best to utilize library resources throughout your PhD program at the College of Nursing.

The University Writing Center and the Online Writing Lab

The University Writing Center (UWC) 
Provides instruction to students, faculty, and staff of the university with basic writing skills and assistance with specific writing assignments in any discipline. For more information, please contact the UWC.

ECU Online Writing Lab (OWL) 
Offers Distance Education students the opportunity to consult with a trained writing center consultant via email. Our OWL allows off-campus students to ask specific questions about their writing in any stage, from invention to the final draft. Online consultants will not simply proofread or edit anyone's paper, but they will gladly answer students' questions and try to provide feedback to improve student writing.
