Nursing Apps you can't live without!

  1. I'm curious to see what apps other nurses love to use and get some more apps I can be addicted to

    My personal favorites are:

    Of course AllNurses. Duh.

    Figure One

    And CEN practice (I'm a nerd).

    So what are yours? Can't wait to download some new nursing addictions!

    I love nurses pocket drug guide. I pay the $10. It's so worth it for a speedy lookup and no internet.

    - NurseGrid
    - Nursing Central by Unbound Medicine
    - Read by QxMD
    - Medscape
    - Medline by Unbound Medicine
    - Figure 1
    - EBSCOhost app (painfully awful on iOS but still one of my favorites)
    - MedCalc (the older version but a new version is available and is free)
    - Allnurses

    My institution provides Lexicomp for free and I really like that one.
    -10 second EM is a quick reference for many things ED. Doc focused but I still like it and use it.
    -I have a dedicated conversion calculator. Many of them out there and nice when you need it.
    -Medicode for a quick reference ACLS algorithms
    -Epocrates
    - And a game called Resuscitation. fun one that puts you in the docs shoes.

    Pill Identifier from Drugs.Com, I believe.
    Very helpful in HH when handed a bowl of loose pills... (And yes- happens more than you'd think)
    Came in handy a few times in the hospital as well when a loose pill was discovered in the bed or on the floor!

    At school, we had to have the Unbound Medicine one. I particularly use the Davis Drug Guide which came as part of it. You can get the Drug Guide separately.

    Read by QXmd. Since my facility uses a proxy server to the library I can get most journals to my iPad and iPhone. Next is Papers 3 which I use as a reference manager, to keep track of my PDF's.

    I find over the past year or so I don't use apps as much as I used to . Davis Drug guide because the facility I'm at now only uses generic names not trade names and i can't remember half of them.
