A Partnership in Introducing and Promoting Nursing Reference Center at the Point of Care Public

Collaboration between healthcare professionals and librarians can significantly affect quality improvement initiatives. The Penn State Hershey Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Council (NREBP) consists of members from each nursing unit and a medical librarian. In the summer of 2013, the council established a goal to develop the means for translating research and/or evidence into practice at the point of care. To help achieve this goal the NREBP Council, with the librarian’s assistance, introduced and promoted the Nursing Reference Center (NRC) at the Point of Care throughout the Department of Nursing via the shared governance Council structure.
