Introducing The Nursing Point-of-Care LibGuide--now available statewide across Ascension Wisconsin.

The Nursing Point-of-Care  LibGuide pulls together some of the just-in-time online reference tools that are most useful for nurses in direct care of patients, including:
  • Nursing Procedure Manuals
      • (includes The Lippincott Manuals, known to be excellent nursing references for policies & procedures)
  • Diseases & Disorders
  • Drug Info
  • Lab Tests
  • Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary
  • Cinahl (Find Nursing Articles)
  • Patient Education
  • And links to go deeper with the Nursing Specialties LibGuide and Clinical Key.

This is meant to be a temporary solution until Ascension chooses a standardized nursing point-of-care tool and makes it available nation-wide.  There will be some lag time before an Ascension Wisconsin state-wide subscription for this NEW nursing point-of-care (POC) tool goes into effect later in 2018.   Until then, use this LibGuide.   

How to get there via the legacy intranets :

            or    MHC : The Source > Links & Resources > Nursing Point-of-Care

            WFHC : TauNet > Library > Nursing Point-of-Care Tools

We are also working to get this link included in the various EHRs around Wisconsin and legacy intranets.
