Thanks By His Grace!
I looked at the website on Unboundmedicine.com
It looks good, some reviews stated that it was required for some nursing school programs. I am not sure how true that is. I appreciate any feedback.
I am a second quarter nursing student and I use Unbound Medicine constantly. It is well worth it!! Davis Drug and the Diseases and Taber's make it essential. Everyone comes to me to look stuff up, it is fast and easy and right there in your pocket!
totally worth it. if you haven't bought a regular drug book yet, save your money and buy Nursing Central isntead. Davis's drug guide alone makes it worth it. Lookin up meds takes second isntead of minutes and it fits in your pocket.
Medscape is a great free supplement but it isn't nursing specific. When you're writing careplans Nursing Central is a great help. Diseases & Disorders spells out your nursing diagnoses and plan of care for you.
I used it every day of my ABSN program, and as a new grad RN I'm constantly looking up drugs that I'm giving ... the drug guide and Tabers are essential. Much easier to have an iPod in my pocket than to lug around a drug book or run to the nurse's station and track down Tabers...
My school requires us to download and purchase Skyscape, which sounds similar to what you are describing. I can't tell you how many a drug or medical term pops into my head and I need to look it up for clarification. The convenience of having drug and medical info at the touch of your hand is priceless.
