How do I download the Nursing Reference Center application for iPhone/iPad/iPod touch?

The Nursing Reference Center (NRC) app for iPhone/iPad/iPod touch is available for download from the iTunes app store. After downloading the app, it must be authenticated from the Nursing Reference Center interface.

To authenticate the Nursing Reference Center app:

1. Log into the Nursing Reference Center interface (if you are on campus, this is automatic).

2. Click the Nursing Reference Center iPhone/iPod Touch Application link at the bottom of the page and enter your email address. It is labeled “New: NRC iPhone/iPod Touch Application.”

An email with an authentication key is sent to you.

3. Access the email from your device and click the link found in the email to authenticate the application.

You have 24 hours to access the key from your device to authenticate the app. If the key is not used within 24 hours, it expires and you will need a new key.

Note: Once it is authenticated, the app can be used for nine months, after which you must send yourself a new authentication key from the NRC interface.
