    I'm guessing a laptop is better cause some things u can't pull up on a iPad!

    I absolutely ADORE my iPad... but I also have a small netbook for writing papers. If you had to choose, I would say iPad but be sure to have access to a regular computer like at your school's library.

    Before starting the ADN program, I was thinking about investing in an Ipad since I already had a laptop. I am already in my 2nd semester and have yet to buy that Ipad. I haven't had a use for it. Having a laptop is probably the best investment, well for me it was. Writing papers and especially careplans are alot easier on a laptop.

    I prefer my laptop over my pad by a long-shot when it comes to school work. It's much easier for me type up notes during class, type up research papers and essays, and anything else I need to type up on my laptop than it is on my pad with a touch screen.

    I have an iPad and a laptop-- I leave the laptop at home and take my iPad everywhere. Everywhere. My notes are so much more effective as study tools now that I can easily integrate pictures into them... A few classmates have gotten one after seeing what it can do. I do still write papers on my laptop, but I really spend more time with my iPad than anything.
    You don't NEED one, but it really is awfully nice to have and to use. If you already have a computer at home, I highly recommend the iPad.

    When choosing a computer or tablet, talk to people already in the program you are planning on attending. With the program I'm in now, we are required to watch skills videos online and you can't play them on an iPad. Just something to think about, especially if a desktop computer is older and doesn't have the system requirements or is slow :-)
