Just got a Sony clie,and found the link to the nursing software called PEPID RN right here on the board.
, nursing diagnosis.......etc. It has a searchable index for meds,terminology.
My $35.00 drug index from springhouse was obsolete even though it was a 2002! I looked up the meds my wife just got a script for,and they were not there,but PEPID is a subscription to update downloads and it will always be up to date.
PEPID:$56 for 6 months sub.
That beats the heck out of the price I paid for these text referrences!

mkue: CNET has a lot of reviews of all types of electronic goods including a search engine that will help locate the lowest price online for what u want. Basically, if u want to buy: first have to decide which platform: Palm OS and Pocket PC are the 2 most popular. (sort of like Microsoft or Mac). There are a lot more free programs for Palm than PPC, especially in the health/medical area.
I recommend reading up on PDAs: 'Computer Shopper' or 'What Laptop and Handheld' are excellent mags which compare different brands and models.
CLIE is the Sony model: Sony Clie
There are new models coming out for Xmas, so the older models will be discounted. Conversely, u may want the new models.
My advice: buy expandable PDAs, for Palm 16MB of RAM, for PPC
as much as you can get.
I have a Palm m505 and use it for everything. When I was a student NP, it was a godsend!!!
