Does anyone know any websites?

  1. I need to do research over about 10 diagnosis and meds that I cannot find in any of my books(over my Chistmas break). Does anyone know any good websites that I can use for this? I usually don't use the internet for this but I am at a loss. Any help would be great.

    I haven't used it myself yet, but some in my class love Epocrates.com for med information. It's free and easy to use. I don't know any diagnosis websites, but hopefully Daytonite will respond--she's awesome with websites.

    Good luck!

    hello
    Check out this website, very easy to use:
    Free Online Medical Diagnosis by Symptoms
    Okay, checked out this website and it is a good one, best of all, it is free!
    Just curious, which ten diagnosis and meds are you looking up?
    Take care and have fun during your winter break

    Are you talking about nursing diagnosis or medical? I always thought they were 2 different things. And for a nursing diagnoisis you can not use a medical diagnosis but how you care for the patient with a certain medical diagnosis?
