Ratings and Reviews
Not worth subscription
After playing with the app, I feel like it has a lot of great information. I am a soon to be FNP and think that this information is a great reference tool for new providers. However, it’s also a lot of basic information we learned in our studies. I don’t think this app would be worth the $9.99 simply for the BEERS criteria. It would be great to have on hand, but I can also use the internet from my computer to get that information for free. Overall, it’s a great resource tool for new practitioners but I don’t recommend a subscription, at least at the $9.99 price.
I paid and downloaded and it does nothing-incomplete home screen just frozen. Deleted and installed again, same thing. I want a refund!!
Update fixed the freezing issue. Thank you!
