FREE Nursing Books for your Kindle

Updated on April 28, 2012

Kindle App for Android

No Kindle? No Problem......there's an app for that.

I know in the title, it says for the Kindle. If you don't own a Kindle (you should) it's okay, because like everything else, there is an app for that which allows you to download and read Kindle books on other devices like your computer, another eReader or tablet, even on your phone. It works perfectly fine and I love it. Before I had my Kindle, I used this app on my cell phone, and my son also has the app on his tablet. The app is totally free to download.

I love to read, especially reference type books on nursing or any medical topic. I used to read much more, but now just don't have as much time with all these kids running around. I was lucky enough to WIN a FREE Kindle Keyboard last fall and I have really enjoyed it. I discovered that having real books in my home with a very mobile toddler is just asking for a disaster, so the Kindle is perfect in that sense. While searching for some Nurse gift ideas for the upcoming Nurses Week, I found some FREE reading material for nursing or anyone just interested in learning about things of medical nature. I found both reference as well as story type books. Here is a list of the ones I found. Keep in mind I have not yet read these, so I'm not going to review them, however, these are FREE, so if you download them and don't like them, you didn't lose anything :).
