There are many apps on the market for mobile and tablet users, but there are only a few that are specifically for the nursing industry. The great thing about nursing apps is that you can study while you are on the go, and most apps even include games so they will keep you on your toes at all times. If you are interested in adding a nursing app to your smartphone or tablet, then have a look at the top five must-have apps for android and ios devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch) below if you are a student nurse studying towards jobs in nursing.
uCentral is a very expensive app, and can cost upwards of $170 per year, so it certainly isn’t an app for anyone who isn’t serious about taking their nursing career to the next level. A lot of university’s such as The University of Arizona may already have purchased the app, so you can have access to it without paying a dime. The app itself consists of many references and answers when it comes to diagnoses, and many nurses around the world use the app on a daily basis because it is an app that has proved so valuable to their progress.
MPR is an app that provides invaluable information when it comes to drugs and their uses. The app itself has many charts and comparisons for drugs and certain illnesses, so you can be sure you are going to have all of the important information you need in one easy to use app. You will easily be able to search for a particular illness and what drugs will be able to help cure it. The MPR app is completely free so you’ll be able to learn about different drugs and their uses without spending a cent.
3. Skyscape Medical Library
The Skyscape Medical Library app is completely free and houses tons of dosing calculators, diseases and symptom information, and plenty of other information that is beneficial to not only student nurses, but also experienced ones. This app also has a paid version, which includes many other features and guides.
4. Human Anatomy Atlas
The Human Anatomy Atlas is built around a 3D platform, so users can see the insides of the human body, which has over 4,000 structures present. Users will be able to gain helpful information on anything to do with the human body. The app is a paid app, but it is an app well worth forking out for if you have an interest in the human anatomy.
5. Pill Identifier
The Pill Identifier is an app that does exactly what the name suggests: it identifies pills of all shapes and sizes and it will give helpful information on a particular pill you don’t know anything about. Simply enter the pill’s physical appearance and it will come up with an accurate match.
The above apps are just some of the very few nurse apps available, but they are the best at what they do and they will help nurses take their nursing careers to the next level.
