When citing information from a webpage, remember that in general, you need to cite specific pages, not the site as a whole. The most common situations will be webpages with an individual author or group author.  Some sample references you can model from APA's Academic Writer are below:


Webpage, group author, dated and undated

ACT Raising Safe Kids Program. (n.d.). About the ACT raising safe kids program. American Psychological Association. https://www-apa-org.libauth.purdueglobal.edu/act/about/

American Nurses Association. (n.d.). Ethics and rights. https://www.nursingworld.org/practice-policy/nursing-excellence/ethics/

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2018, January 23). Flu vaccines work. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/high_risk.htm

Webpage, individual author, dated

Hall-Flavin, D. K. (2016). What is passive-aggressive behavior? What are some of the signs? Mayo Clinic. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/adult-health/expert-answers/passive-aggressive-behavior/faq-20057901

O'Hara, D. (2019, November 14). Study of human intelligence at center of Michael Gardner’s career. American Psychological Association. https://www-apa-org.libauth.purdueglobal.edu/members/content/gardner-human-intelligence
