iPad apps?

  1. 0
    I know I've seen people mention different apps, but when I tried searching the forums I couldn't find a post about apps so I figured I'd ask for recommendations...

    Any iPad apps that you found very useful in school? Any that were a waste of time? Also interested in phone apps too...

    I'm new to apps in the academic world so it's hard to guess what might be helpful... I'm a 2nd degree BSN student so all jr/sr year coursework.

    Thanks!

    If you go to the store in iTunes you can spend all day long tooling around through apps. There are topics like note-taking, productivity, medical, all sorts of things. I paid good money for the Netter illustrations for anatomy to help with patient teaching, but I can see it would be great for someone taking anatomy, too. Medscape, all the different nursing specialties, Taber's, Epocrates, Convert, Lab Values, Medline-- I use all of these often, and most are free or very cheap (less than $2.99). I have all of them on my iPhone too.

    Thanks! I browsed the itunes store before posting this, which is why I decides to ask : )

    Lots to choose from and most are reasonably priced, but a few are a bit pricey and I wanted to know what was worth it before getting any of the more expensive ones. I'm definitely looking for a note taking program, but a pharmacology app and lab values app would be great reference... as well as a practice test question bank.

    If your professor does lots and lots of powerpoints and you do not want to print out the slides, I recommend iAnnotate PDF for note taking because you can actually write on the slides and highlight material.

    There is a free micromedex by Truven

    For fun, I recommend downloading Prognosis. It's just a case study "game" and discussion.

    Be careful about buying NCLEX review questions from companies like Saunders, Davis, and Lipincott because they just repeat questions from their book and CD.

    Allnurses.com app (of course)

    I love Micromedix and Notability. I use them religiously. Also Dropbox...a great way to store all your stuff and keep it accessible.

    I also recommend Micromedex by Truven

    Also, try ABGStat for quickie ABG results. The neat thing is, after a while you begin to see patterns and can figure them out yourself much faster

    I bought the Nurse's pocket guide to help me with care plans during clinicals. It costs $40 but it has helped me tremendously.
