RNotes: Where did you get yours and how much did it cost? - page 2

    Okay everybody, I am a newsie here and don't start school until the summer. What are RNotes you are all talking about? It sounds great, but it would be nice if I knew what you were all talking about so I could get whatever it is.
    What it is is a small, pocket-size reference guide...suitable for nursing students and established nurses. There are tabs that take you directly to assessment tools, lab values, dosage/calc formulas, well-known meds, etc....You can assess up to four patients per shift in it (maybe it's more? Brain overload, can't remember if it's 4 or more) and then, after you're finished, simply wipe it away with an alcohol swab. Here's a pic of one I found on ebay....was going to put it in as a hyperlink but the page kept automatically refreshing and wouldn't let me....copy/paste time.

    Hello everyone!

    I am looking for some input on which is better?

    RN Notes OR Mosbys Nursing PDQ

    They both have a wealth of information, but I don't want to have TWO books in my pocket!

    Thanks!

    I have cowboyed up.....I have a pda....Sony Clie UX 50. BUT.....its a pain to find things in the books for the pda.....Tabers I use, Davis I use....other things I have on it are more time consuming finding info than carrying a book in my pocket. Now, with that explained, do you have any advice on which book is best???

    I have RNotes on my pda. I find it very easy to use and helpful.

    I wanted one for clinicals SO BAD!!! They are roughly $20 and I kept trying to get one cheaper on Ebay.....

    THEN.......

    I volunteered in class for a demo and my instructor gave me one for FREE as a thank you for being a volunteer!
