I am a new NP getting ready to start my first job in the ER and I want to purchase a new electronic device that will allow me to download reference software from Skyscape such as: Epocrates and Rosen and Barkin 5-Minute Emergency Medical Consult. I understand that while most are available for all platforms (ex: Blackberry, Android, iPhone, PDA) some work better on certain platforms than others. I am interested in feedback from those of you who have used these as well as other applications with your own personal electronic device in order to help me decide which device to purchase. Ideally I would prefer not to have to carry a cell phone
and a separate PDA for references so that would eliminate the PDA. Thank you for your feedback!
