5 Mobile Apps for Nursing Students

Higher Education Articles November 4, 2013

Today’s technology offers several nursing students mobile apps to make life easier and more efficient for busy nursing students who are often working as nurses or interns while they are in school and managing other obligations. Some mobile apps that are available on cell phones, iPads, and other mobile applications offer necessary information about medications and patient care procedures, while other apps facilitate and improve study skills nurses need in order to manage the often complex nature of content in medical textbooks and materials.

5 Nursing Students Mobile Apps

Among several mobile apps for nursing students, here are five of the most essential, in alphabetical order (associated costs were current as of 2011 and may be different as of 2013):

Eponyms: Eponyms are terms used in health care to designate the person who made a medical discovery or the place in which it was discovered. The Eponyms app contains a medical dictionary with hundreds of definitions and descriptions of relevant eponyms for easy access and confirmation. Looking up general related terms will result in the eponym, definition, and description. Cost: Free.

Five Minute Clinical Consult: Considering the plethora of medical conditions in existence, it’s virtually impossible to recognize or remember them all. The Five Minute Clinical Consult app provides information about hundreds of medical conditions, along with an entire section devoted to pediatrics, with appropriate sections and diagnostic tools. Cost: $99.95.

NCLEX Lite: The crowning achievement for nursing students is to pass the National Council Licensure Examination or NCLEX, so he or she can become a licensed professional nurse. The NCLEX Lite app offers the equivalent of portable quiz cards on iPads or iPhones in the form of randomized questions and answers. Cost: $0.99.

Nursing Central: Carrying an entire nursing manual or collection of nursing school textbooks would be challenging. The Nursing Central app replaces the need to do that by offering an impressive collection of information about diseases, drugs, and testing, along with 60,000 medical terms and descriptions, and access to a comprehensive online database. Cost: $159.99.

Nursing Essentials: Imagine having access to all of the learning materials necessary for an entire nursing program. Nursing students no longer have to imagine or wish for such an amazing opportunity since the Nursing Essentials app provides exactly that and more: diagrams, photos, lists, and descriptions neatly divided into categories; sections covering cardiac, neurological, and respiratory systems, as well as medical emergencies; and an overall assessment section offering standard information for use both in the classroom and at a patient’s bedside. Cost: $5.99.

Healthcare technology, iPads, iPhones, and other mobile apps will likely continue to evolve and improve. It only makes sense for nursing students to take advantage of them, to improve study skills nurses need now as students and nursing skills and knowledge they need as they practice now and in the future.
