College of Nursing Mobile Computing

Why Mobile Devices?

The College of Nursing requires all undergraduate (BSN) students and Graduate Entry students to have mobile devices by the beginning of Autumn semester as part of their requirements for the program. Having a mobile device puts a wealth of evidence based information at your fingertips; including, a drug database, lab and diagnostic tests information, information about medical conditions, calculators and formula references, and more. The mobile device is more than just a static reference tool though, the materials update regularly, giving you current information on topics like warnings from the FDA, drug costs, and new dosage recommendations and once you are comfortable with using your device, you will spend less time looking up information that you would looking it up in a book, not to mention it weighs a lot less.

Compatible Devices

All Apple devices running iOS 7.0 or greater are supported. These include the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Tablets are supported but not recommended in the clinical setting as they can be misplaced easily. All Google devices running Android 4.0 or greater are also supported. Blackberry and Windows Phone are not supported at this time.
