  • This app is too expensive!

    By asiegbucp
    This app is too expensive and the fact that it is a subscription app makes it a total rip-off to nursing students struggling to make ends meet while in school. I do not recommend at all.
  • Great App!

    By Harleyguy251
    This app is a must for any nurse or nursing student. It saves time and is an excellent resource for writing patient care plans.
  • Beware!

    By NurseP2be
    I purchased two apps from them thinking they are a company that would keep up with the apps but noticed my nursing dx app will no longer function with newer ios updates. Long story short they say it is apple that will be making the app useless, but they removed it. Will not be purchasing an app from them anymore or any app developer unless they have a proven track record of keeping the apps running smooth with newer operating systems. Really upset that I spent close to 70 and wont be able to use it if I update to ios 11.

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I always forget my manual nursing guide at home. I decided to get a digital version and this gave me what I wanted.
  • Well worth the investment

    By Heir Of The Kingdom
    This is one of those apps that is more of an investment rather than simply a purchase. The information is detailed and thorough and more than I anticipated. It's not cheap, relative to the usual cost of a typical app, but what you get is invaluable to the nursing student, like myself, and to the practicing professional. I anticipate using this app well after graduation in a couple of months.
  • Awesome
