The free version is good for nursing. Don't have to pay for it.

It's definitely worth it. I have the full version and I love it. I can update it weekly so my info is always current.

Im starting my program in August and I was just wondering if it would be a good idea to get a PDA. Will Epocrates, Davis Drug Guide etc help me during school? Or should I wait to get it when I graduate?

Actually, nursing school is the best time to have a PDA programs like the ones mentioned above. Seasoned nurses may not need a PDA, but they're great for new RNs. By the way, the full version of Epocrates has a drug guide in it...but it doesn't have a dictionary so I've got Taber's Medical Dictionary on mine as well.
