For Nurses and Nursing Students
Nursing professionals are always on the go, attending to patient needs and making sure that everything is properly documented. Additionally, nurses must be quick on their feet, able to recall and apply vast amounts of medical knowledge throughout the day. While a good memory is essential to success, the advent of mobile applications has made it easier for nurses and nursing students to quickly access the information they need. The following nursing apps are among the best the marketplace has to offer. Take a look and let us know what your favorite nursing app is in the comments below.
