I just bought an iPod Touch and am loving it so far. I am starting nursing school next month and want to install an all-in-one app that will help while I'm at clinicals. I can't seem to decide between Epocrates, Skyscape Constellation, and Unbound Nursing Companion.
I am required to buy a lab & diagnostics book, and it's recommended that I get a drug guide and a medical encyclopedia. I'd love to take care of all three on my iPod so I'm not carrying a bunch of books around. Unbound allows access to books on my PC as well, which is a selling point. Skyscape seems to be less expensive. Epocrates seems to be really popular with nurses who are out in the field. I would like something simple to use, hopefully with cross referencing (which all three seem to have).
Any thoughts or suggestions?
We now have an official allnurses.com app, download it today
I think I'm going to go with Unbound Nursing Central. I like the fact that I can access all the same information on my computer and that the text is coming from books I'm required to have as a student. I also downloaded Skyscape Constellation for my computer as a trial run and really disliked it. Epocrates sounds like a good idea once I'm actually working as an RN, but not necessarily the right choice while I'm a student. I'll check back in once I've used the application for a while to give a review.
