EBSCO Publishing releases Nursing Reference Center iPhone app

EBSCO is announcing the release of an iPhone application for Nursing Reference Center™. This new app from EBSCO represents the only evidence-based, point-of-care nursing mobile application available today.

The Nursing Reference Center iPhone app allows nurses to access point-of-care nursing content anytime and anywhere with EBSCO’s mobile technology. Users are able to search and browse the content quickly via their Apple iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Available free from the iTunes App Store, Nursing Reference Center customers can take advantage of this mobile technology at no additional cost.
Features available with the new app include the ability to navigate through topics with a table of contents, view recent or saved searches and adjust content that is being searched via a categories page. The app also provides many of the same features that users are accustomed to such as an option to sort by relevance or date, save or email an item and auto complete functionality to suggest a search.

Nursing Reference Center offers staff nurses, nurse administrators, nursing students, nurse faculty and hospital librarians the best available and most recent clinical evidence from thousands of full-text documents. The application features more than 2,200 clinically organized quick lessons, 700 evidence-based care sheets, over 1,100 drug monographs and 1,300 Nursing Practice and Skills & Skill Competency Checklists.

This point-of-care resource supports all five Magnet Components and is updated on a weekly basis. Nursing Reference Center also includes continuing education modules, detailed medical illustrations, the latest medical news, legal cases, research instruments, unique point-of-care reference books, and more.

Nursing Reference Center provides relevant clinical resources to nurses and other health care professionals, directly at the point-of-care. Additional point-of-care resources offered by EBSCO Publishing include DynaMed™, Rehabilitation Reference Center™, Patient Education Reference Center™ and GIDEON™.
