    Hi Brent, could you please give me examples of what this handheld computer and complete collection of software would be? Or at least a link (aside from SkyScape)? Is there a package that I could buy with all of this? For example, I see that SkyScape has the Nursing Constellation Plus, but I don't know if that is worth it and also it requires a smartphone. What do nurses and other nursing students use that they find is most helpful?
    I wrote that note before the iPhone even had software available. I now recommend a $200 Apple iPod Touch (no monthly fee), or the iPhone if you already have an AT&T contract (extra $30/mo data fee). There are dozens of free medical apps on the App Store. Just search for medical calculator, med abbreviations, medical math, etc.

    My favorite collection of resources is Unbound Medicine's Nursing Central. They have a drug guide, dictionary, nursing care guide, lab guide, and nursing dx guide for $159. That includes free updates for a year but, unlike many of the Skyscape titles, they will continue to work after the subscription ends.
