Amazing app

I'm in my 3rd semester in an ADN program and I really wish I bought this app sooner. The book is helpful but the app is even more convenient since you can just carry your phone with you in clinical and don't have to worry about losing your book or having to carry it around.
I gave this app 4 stars because I wish there was some sort of categories for physical, psychosocial, and educational nursing diagnoses.
But other than that it's wonderful and I would strongly suggest purchasing this app! Hopefully the developers make those categories (:

This app is too expensive!

This app is too expensive and the fact that it is a subscription app makes it a total rip-off to nursing students struggling to make ends meet while in school. I do not recommend at all.

Developer Response ,

It sounds like your device may have received an incomplete download of the content, which can happen if there is an interruption to the internet connection during the initial download. We recommend deleting the Nurse's Pocket Guide app, then redownloading it from the App Store, making sure your device has a strong internet connection. It should then provide you with the options to sign in, preview, or buy.
