I know there are a few apps out there that come in handy for nurses. I came across RN notes, Davis' Lab and Diagnostics, etc. Obviously, you have to pay for all of them, but I was wondering if they were worth it; if they are actually practical. Anyone use them?? Thanks!

This is an antiquated idea, in my opinion. Technology is advancing. Phones aren't just phones any longer. Our docs use their smart phones all the time to look up info. Why can't the nurses?
As I stated, the iPod Touch (and the bigger iPad too for that matter) does everything the iPhone does, without a phone or camera. Possession of a personal phone or personal camera opens you up to any number of liabilities.
If you never carry your personal phone or personal camera, no one can effectively accuse you of ever using them inappropriately.
How many posts have you read on allnurses about the troubles that can be caused by accusations, right or wrong? Even in the last week?
Doesn't it make sense to cover your own rear?
Carry your references (PDA), not potential problems (phone/camera).
