Which one would be more beneficial to have? The Mosby's pocket dictionary of medicine, nursing, and health professions BOOK or EBOOK? I feel like it would be easier to look up terms with the ebook.

Ebooks can be easier, but keep in mind that some facilities still do not allow iPhones, etc. on the floor. We can't have phones/iPads/iPods or anything like that on the floor at our clinical sites per our program guidelines.

It's actually a requirement for us to carry a PDA (iPhone etc) on the floor. We are expected to utilize Nursing Central. It can be quite handy.

If we want to access Internet we have to use one of the floor computers...that are used for charting and med pulls (clearly there's not a lot of googling done on the floors we're on LOL ;))

I haven't had to crack open my Mosby's guide once and I'm 2 semesters away from finishing. If it's not a required text, skip it. I wish I could get my money back!

It's required unfortunately. :/
