NRC Plus Home page lists an easy link to the internal Ascension Covid-19 Response

 link has been added to the home page of NRC Plus.   
In the screenshot above, the link is highlighted in yellow at the bottom of the NRC Plus page.

NRC Plus allows us to add useful outside links (non-NRC Plus content) to the homepage of NRC Plus.

Short of everyone having the link bookmarked, the NRC Plus home page is a universal place for Ascension nurses (and other internal staff) to find this link around the country when they need it in a hurry.
It does not replace local links on local intranets.  It does offer an additional access point to get there.

Ascension Covid-19 Response Resource Center

Coronavirus from the CDC's Public Health Image Library.

To get you the information you need, Ascension has developed the 

COVID-19 Response Resource Center

  • an internal website for associates and clinicians to support our efforts to keep the entire Ascension community informed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new site provides critical resources and updates for the Ascension community. 

The COVID-19 Response Resource Center replaces the use of Jam and SharePoint for housing resources and updates

  • All chapters of the toolkit formerly known as “COVID-19 Toolkit” on Jam are now represented as individual documents on the site. 
  • All memos can be found in a section titled “Other.”

As information continues to evolve based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, documents, protocols and resources on the site will be updated.

Please bookmark the page and check it often.

The site is accessible to all associates, contingent workers, aligned medical staff, and other Ascension stakeholders with an existing Google account. Please click here for instructions.
