This application allows novice nurses and nursing students to search for over 340 common diseases and disorders, separated by body system. Once the disease/ disorder is selected, the user will be able to have useful information right at their fingertips, including a nursing process approach to managing client care. There are simple explanations of what each of the diseases/ disorders are and common assessment findings associated with them. In addition, useful information is included that incorporates priority assessments needed for clients with the selected disease/ disorder. Potential applicable Nursing Diagnoses with related factors and client goals are also incorporated. Appropriate interventions are outlined to help guide client care and encourage a comprehensive approach to managing client care. These can be especially useful when studying for NCLEX examinations, developing client-centered care plans, and in acute care medical-surgical settings. Finally, the nursing process would not be complete without an evaluation. Complications are outlined for each disease/ disorder to help student nurses and novice nurses start to build upon foundations presented through core nursing education classes.

Good for students but....
I am an RN currently working on a med surg unit. I paid $10 for this app but sadly I am disappointed. I think it would have been GREAT when I was a student doing clinicals but now it is too basic and vague for my needs. I think there should be a free sample offered so people know what they are getting before they purchase.
This app is amazing !!!
I am an LPN a charge nurse and I love this app. So easy to use. Every diagnosis u can think of is on the app and it gives tells u what to assess for and the goals and interventions and symptoms. It's great !!! I love it !!!
App not what I expected
This app would be great for a nursing student. As a nurse on the floor I feel this app is very generic. Not worth $5 definitely not worth $10.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
