Sydney, New South Wales (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
Elsevier Australia has launched the first app in its Clinical Cases app series: 'Clinical Cases – Fundamentals of Nursing'.
A fun alternative study tool, this nursing app is purpose-designed for self-testing and easy revision.
Student nurses say one of the best things about using Clinical Cases apps will be the ability to study at their own pace. Like all good apps, this one can be used anywhere, at any time.
The complete 'Clinical Cases – Fundamentals of Nursing' app features: 24 progressive case studies with integrated multiple-choice questions and answer rationales; 150 flash cards to test nurses on key nursing definitions; timed word games and a medical glossary.
The initial download, priced at AUD$4.49, includes two detailed nursing case studies, flash cards, word puzzles and a glossary.
Nurses can then pick and choose from the remaining case studies, selecting the ones that best suit their needs.
They can buy the remaining 22 case studies at once, buy them one at a time, or purchase themed sets of two, such as Adolescent Mental Health and Mental Health 1 & 2 or Acute Care 1 & 2.
To further enhance their learning experience, nurses can use the app in conjunction with Elsevier Australia’s bestselling nursing textbook, Potter and Perry’s Fundamentals of Nursing, 4th ANZ Edition by Jackie Crisp, Catherine Taylor, Clint Douglas and Geraldine Rebeiro, and the accompanying Clinical Skills Workbook, 2nd Edition by Geraldine Rebeiro, Leanne Jack and app authors Natashia Scully and Damian Wilson.
The app is compatible with Apple iPhone (optimised for iPhone 5), iPod touch and iPad* and will soon also be available for android devices via Google Play.
The initial download of Clinical Cases – Fundamentals of Nursing is available now. Find it in the Apple App Store.
*Devices require iOS 4.3 or later.
