Nursing Software for Smart Phones
Software for Smart Phones
Many people aren't aware that you can really use your smart phone as a PDA. Yes, they're marketed as such, but many people, even cell phone company employees aren't aware of it.
My dad recently went in to Cingular to inquire about the Samsung BlackJack 2. He told the guy he didn't want to put internet on the phone, as that was the only way to get a $100 rebate. The guy, who seemed to be a manager, told my dad there was no reason to get a smart phone without the internet because you take away the majority of the features. Not true. Well, that is true, but my dad quickly responded, "I have software that I used on my last Cingular 2125 for nursing." The guy was baffled. He had no idea what my dad was talking about.
And, many people don't. Below are the better and more popular nursing software packs that you can purchase for your smart phone.
Before purchasing any software for your smart phone, make sure that it has Microsoft Mobile. Although, you don't necessarily need Microsoft Mobile, but you will find more software options with the program. Many smart phones already offer Microsoft Mobile, so check with your cell phone features.
