What is Nursing Reference Center Plus?

Nursing Reference Center Plus is an evidence-based point-of-care tool for nurses, that includes:
·                     Nursing Skills & Procedures (with Competencies)
·                     Diseases & Conditions
·                     Evidence-Based Care Sheets
·                     Drug Info with Nursing Implications
·                     Management Topics
·                     Patient Education Handouts to supplement what is already in the EHRs
·                     Easy Journal Search
·                     Continuing Education
·                     Videos & Images

NRC Plus is considered an excellent source-of-truth for current nursing skills & procedures.  After your local policies, NRC Plus should be the go-to reference that will help you provide consistent and highly reliable care across Ascension.

Where to find it (Accessing NRC Plus):

  • Look for the desktop icon on ALL Ascension Wisconsin computers.  Note : This is on the computer desktop, not the intranet. 

The short 3-minute video is on the landing page for NRC – Plus under the Take a Tour link in the middle of the page. [Requires Flash].

  • This is what we told / showed nurses during the site visits. 
  • Short, sweet and practical!
