How do I cite enotes articles in APA format?

I need to use the APA format for all citations (wishing that enotes would offer the choice between MLA and APA). What I need to understand is, when citing a reference like enotes, I need to give credit to both the article author and enotes, correct? I have posted a citation done in MLA extracted from the ‘cite your source’ link for this article on enotes. Can you translate it to APA? I just need one example, I can take it from there.

"Bioethics." Encyclopedia of Nursing & Allied Health. Ed. Kristine Krapp. Gale Cengage, 2002. eNotes.com. 2006. 8 Nov, 2010 <http://www.enotes.com/nursing-encyclopedia/
bioethics>

Please translate this MLA citation into APA. Thanks.

Cite this like any other encyclopedia with editor. For example:

Smith, J. (2004). Martin Luther. In L. McDonald (ed.), Encyclopedia of science and religion. Babson Press. Retrieved November 20, 2003, from http://www.scireligion.com/ml

If there is no author, begin with the title of the entry.

For an excellent look at APA formatting with examples, you should visit:

They offere a great overview that is updated to reflect current edition APA rules. Its an excellent cite for those who are familiar with MLA and need to switch to APA as well!
