This app is too expensive!

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.


Amazing app

I'm in my 3rd semester in an ADN program and I really wish I bought this app sooner. The book is helpful but the app is even more convenient since you can just carry your phone with you in clinical and don't have to worry about losing your book or having to carry it around.
I gave this app 4 stars because I wish there was some sort of categories for physical, psychosocial, and educational nursing diagnoses.
But other than that it's wonderful and I would strongly suggest purchasing this app! Hopefully the developers make those categories (:

Heir Of The Kingdom

Well worth the investment

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.
