The Rhode Island Center of Nursing Excellence (RICNE) is a consortium of local colleges along with Lifespan. In early 2011 the group came to me with hopes of branching off of the sub-site on URI.edu and have their own portal for nursing information. I had the somewhat difficult task of determining a color scheme and generalized look that would not lean towards one college or group involved in RICNE more than the other. I settled on a lightweight brown and tan color scheme and information-first layout.
The inner pages of RICNE were populated with important resources for perspective nurses as well as graduate students looking for employment. RICNE also planned to have an ongoing blog, which I created and styled accordingly. Today, RICNE remains an important function of a number of Rhode Islands colleges and their nursing programs, but as of 2013 the site was eventually taken down due to a lack of consistent content updates.
