Nurses are busy, busy, busy and helpful medical tools can be a lifesaver! Smartphones are becoming quite the norm and there are some pretty nice apps for nurses out there. Here are a few that I came across:
A free medical calculator. It helps you calculate a litany of different medical formulas and has some other helpful features.
