This app allows novice beginning nurses and nursing students to access all content from the three original apps NurseTabs: MedSurg, NurseTabs: Fundamentals and NurseTabs: Pharmacology. The organization of the app allows the user to search through all three apps simultaneously to find information about specific diseases and conditions, medications, and skills and procedures. A new feature of this combination application allows users to enter in notes related to the content to supplement the materials as they experience them in clinical, laboratory and didactic settings allowing the increase of critical thinking through reflection.

Some of the main features are outlined below:
•Over 120 skills and procedures separated by topic areas learned through fundamental nursing courses.
•Over 200 drug categories and over 1775 individual drug names that might be used in various healthcare settings.
•Gives a brief, simple description of 340 common medical-surgical diseases and disorders including common assessment findings, potential nursing diagnoses, goals for client care, intervention to implement for client care and evaluation for complications that can occur.
•Access to basic information related to common subject matter learned in fundamentals, Medical-Surgical, and Pharmacology courses
•NurseTabs uses a simple categorical approach to assist students and novice nurses in delivering safe, effective care.
•An added “notes” section that allows users to enter information.
•See each individual application for additional descriptive information related to the application features.
Please Note**** As a way to truly connect with our customers, we at NurseTabs would appreciate it if any critical concerns, complaints or inquiry could be sent to us at our support email rather than as a user review. Our goal is to improve our apps whenever possible via free updates. This method allows us to improve when possible and explain intentions of the application as necessary. If you are still unhappy once a response is sent we welcome you to provide the review you so desire. We are passionate about helping student nurses and value the opinions you can provide to allow us to do it better. Sincere Thanks-NurseTabs

Don't Bother

I am an RN working on a post-surgical unit. I bought this set if apps for $20 and I am deeply disappointed. I bought it for the advertised instructional videos to use as a reference for skills we use infrequently on our unit, only to find that you must pay separately for each of the videos you choose to use. Also, the content that is included in the app is not especially helpful or enlightening for the working nurse.

I bought this as a first year nursing student. It is poorly written as if the audience is a middle school
Student. I emailed them asking for my money back as nursetabs asked that we not leave negative reviews before trying to resolve the problem with them first, but they have not returned my email and it's been 8 days. Not satisfied at all.
