First things first: I'm glad to become a part of this community! I was accepted to Samuel Merritt's ABSN (San Mateo) 2007 and will be attending the June 1st orientation. :spin: Looking forward to meeting fellow student nurses and colleagues!
I'm sure I'll have a better idea after June 1st, however, I was wondering if anyone might have pointers/ideas/experience with the various technical needs.
I'm currently looking at various PDA's, not wanting to deal with the learning curve when I start an intensive program.
The main obstacle right now, however, is a laptop. I come from a unix/Mac OS background and am looking at those platforms for nursing school
and post-nursing. A linux option would be very cost-efficient. However, are there software-specific issues I need to be aware of? Is there software required/important for nursing school that is Mac/Windows-specific? If yes, this makes the Mac-option (much more expensive) become more important. Urgh.
Any ideas/input would be welcome!
