iTouch 8gb enough space?
- 0Jun 1, '10 by maggie24I'm planning on purchasing a MacBook and getting the itouch 8gb along with it (free w/rebate) before starting NS in the fall, but I am concerned that the 8gb of space is not enough for all of the various nursing applications that I may need/want to put on it.
It the 8gb big enough? I have no idea how many nursing apps it can hold, with or without music, so just wondering if I should get the 16gb or 32 gb instead? So clueless on what to get . . .
- 0Jun 1, '10 by tlg1971I have an 8Gb and I have Nursing Central on it. That's the Taber's, Davis Drug Guide, Lab & Diagnostics guide, Diseases and Disorders, and Medline Journal. I also have epocrates, IV meds, Med-Surg NCLEX Review, and several other apps for nursing stuff. I still have plenty of room for music, games, etc... I don't think I have used half of the space on it with all that stuff.

But it was much quicker looking up meds in clinicals especially if the doctor ordered something new during the time you were there. It is much easier when you don't have much time to get info together. It saved my butt a couple of times when I would get to clinicals and realize I hadn't finished looking up meds or explaining my patient's diagnosis or putting the finishing touches on a care plan. It is helpful if you're used to using PDA type devices or aren't "afraid" of technology!
