NursingCenter.com Launches New Features to Improve User Experience
Date:11/21/2008

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- NursingCenter.com, the premier site for online nursing continuing education and peer reviewed content, has been updated to improve the interactive experience for its 350,000 registered users. Powered by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW), NursingCenter.com now provides over 900 peer-reviewed continuing education activities and free access to 11,000 articles from more than 50 leading nursing journals. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is a part of Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals, and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry.

The refreshed NursingCenter.com site offers improved navigation and search, and new interactive multimedia tools. "For over 20 years, we have provided comprehensive online content and tools for nurses," said Jennifer Brogan, Vice President of Nursing Journals. "Our new interactive tools reflect the changing needs of nurses by offering continuing education via webcasts, virtual job fairs, and clinical resource centers.

Site improvements developed with input from users include user-friendly navigation with more content accessible from the home page, improved page design, and a new top-screen navigation bar.

"We are also updating our search tools so users can search across all content and media types, both within and outside our site content," said Brogan. "Users can also save our content and articles in a personal file drawer, which is helpful for the many nurses who share a computer in the workplace."

As the leading nursing publisher, LWW recognized early the need for online clinical information. NursingCenter.com was created in 1986 as an electronic Bulletin Board Service to help spread clinical information to nurses in rural areas who would otherwise not have access to the latest journals and technology. Today NursingCenter.com includes free access to thousands of articles from more than 50 of LWW's leading peer-reviewed nursing journals, including the American Journal of Nursing, Nursing2008, Nursing Management, The Nurse Practitioner, Nursing2008 Critical Care, and many more specialty journals. Over 350,000 nurses and other clinical professionals are registered users, which gives them access to the full scope of the site's offerings.

LWW will continue to refine and upgrade NursingCenter.com based on customer input, and anticipates ongoing quarterly upgrades to the site.
