No. The CDC and professional organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics do provide credible information, but for the purposes of assignments in the School of Nursing, faculty typically want journal articles when they ask for peer-reviewed sources. The distinction can be confusing, so a few years ago I prepared a one-page handout for Nursing 214 called "Recognizing Research." .
