Smartphone Apps for nurses including Nursegrid and MediBabble Translator are making it easier for nurses to care for their patients. To help you with all of your nursing challenges, here are a few of our favorite iPhone and Android apps for you to try on the job!
It’s easy to lose track of time when you’re always working hard! Stay on schedule with Nursegrid – the “first calendar built for nurses, by nurses.” Nurse grid allows you to organize your schedule and view who you will be working with from shift-to-shift. This scheduling app also features group and/or private user messaging, making it easier than ever to discuss and/or swap shifts.
If you need a reliable resource for looking up clinical information, Medscape is your App! It features tools for nurses such as medical news across 30+ specialties, drug info and tools, medical calculators, disease and condition info, drug formulary info, and even CME/CE courses across 30+ specialties.
Many patients are in need of care who speak little-to-no English at all! In fact, this is becoming a less uncommon trend across facilities nationwide. To be better prepared for patients who are fluent in other languages, try using MediBabble Translator. Although Spanish is the Apps default language, You can also use the app to translate language spoken in Chinese, Cantonese, Mandarin, French, German, Haitian-Creole and Russian.
