Nursing Central is by far one of the best apps to use as a student or in general practice. I speak from experience as a nurse for 40 years and as a nursing instructor for 15 years. It is a wealth of information that easily translates into knowledge necessary for safe, professional nursing practice.
So helpful in so many ways! Love having several resources in the palm of my hand at one time!
For what I pay per year, I wouldn’t think there would be more to buy in this app, but there is. You get a basic set of comprehensive resources for the annual fee, but if you want anything else you have to pay $50 or so for each extra manual (and there are several of them). I wouldn’t quite call this app a ripoff, but I also wouldn’t say I got my money’s worth, either. I won’t be renewing my subscription when it comes due.
honestly I couldn’t have survived the past few years of nursing school without this app. when I needed to make med cards the night before clinical, having all the meds in one centralized made studying/prepping much more time efficient and easier. I found that I was able to make care plans more effective when I had this app as I guide. Yes, it even includes rationales.
I am a nursing instructor. I have used nursing central as my primary clinical reference for 7 years. I have it loaded on my I phone and is easy to use. Thank you for supplying such a wonderful resource.
I First started using the app in Nursing school . It was very helpful. The info is to the point and accurate. It gives you the info you need quick and easy. I find it very helpful and have continued to use the app as an ED nurse!
I have tried to use this app during clinicals and find it frustrating especially since it doesn’t have autocorrect. I wind up looking things up on google because I don’t know the spelling and it does auto correct.
I have been using this app for a couple of years now since nursing school. I find it easy to use, and I appreciate the cast amount of knowledge
I have been using Nursing Central since nursing school, 12 yrs ago! It is the single-most used app I have ever had the privilege to use! It is a “one-stop shop” for ALL your Nursing needs. It has Diagnoses, Diseases, Lab Values, Medical Dictionary, Drug Handbook, Pictures, Diagrams, Conversions, Calculators, etc, etc, etc…… It is worth Every penny! Buy it today!! 😊
