Nursing Reference Center Plus (NRC)

You can find the information needed to create your reference at the top of the NRC article record (image below) or you can click the Cite button (piece of paper icon on the right hand side of the screen) to find the start of your APA reference. It is important to examine each part of the pre-generated reference to make sure it is formatted correctly.  In the example below we can see the capitalization of the title is incorrect and it is missing the URL.



When you get to URL section of the APA reference, you have two choices.

1) You can use the publisher's url because there are no DOIs. If you go this route, use as your publisher url for CINAHL Nursing Guide and/or Health Library: Evidence-Based Information. Use for anything from US National Guideline Clearinghouse.

2) You can use the permalink for the resource from the NRC database. Find the permalink by clicking on the paper clip icon on the right hand side of the screen.


Your final APA reference for a NRC article should look similar to the examples below:

If you choose to cite it as a reference source, it should look like:

Kornusky, J., & Schub, T. (2013, December 20). Abodominal aortic aneurysm. In
     CINAHL nursing guide. Retrieved from

If you choose to cite it as a journal article, the reference will be just a little bit different:

Komusky, J., & Schub, T. (2013). Abdominal aoritc aneurysm. CINAHL Nursing
     Guide. Retrieved from
