    I really like this app!

  • Love it. I can even get over the ads
    by Mefromoz on 2021-01-13 at 6:48 PM

    Thanks you I even used the references

  • Great
    by chiemewo on 2020-09-22 at 5:52 PM

    Using this app for few mins it gives me more insight about so many terminology, is very broad and have examples to back up the meaning I’m enjoying

  • Bought ad-free version. Still receiving ads.
    by Medstudent2018 on 2020-08-01 at 9:02 PM

    Downloaded this app awhile back and bought the ad-free version since it was useful for Clerkships. Not sure whether it’s worth it to be charged a second time and (who knows?) maybe a third later on.

  • Excellent source for nursing/medical info
    by MBeem on 2020-02-29 at 6:21 PM

    This is an excellent source for all my questions on health & disease. Easy to use.

  • Great App
    by Baileygirlblues on 2020-01-23 at 11:55 PM

  • 10 years out of date
    by Laura1324 on 2019-11-16 at 3:14 PM

    There are at least 3 major issues with this app. 1) It is incomplete, missing many medical terms. Google is a better app! 2) It is unnecessarily difficult to use. For example, if one searches “wound care”, instead of being directed to a definition of wound care, one is taken to a list of every type of care. Then one has to scroll and scroll and scroll to get to the very bottom of a very long list of types of care. 3) It is woefully out of date. I came across one entry (fibromyalgia) that hadn’t been updated since 2009. This was immediately evident because the diagnostic criteria for this syndrome changed in 2010. Thus anyone using the app will be misinformed

  • I must have the wrong app...
    by Dc1577 on 2019-11-13 at 9:50 AM

    I’ve been an RN/NP for 28 yrs. Based on the reviews of this app I downloaded it. I am so disappointed that I can’t get any information or definition on anything unless it is “1st year student basic.” I can get more info from WebMD. I see now there’s an update for purchase, but as bad as the free app was, I’m not buying.

  • Wonderful
    by hshsdbs on 2019-10-13 at 4:12 PM

    This is a wonderful way to quickly get the info you need when your studying!!!! Love it!

  • Love it
    by Sandyg721 on 2019-10-08 at 9:30 PM

    I am in nursing school this App is extremely helpful. It helps with just about everything including pharmacology, Maternity, etc.

  • Good for the humanity = 5 stars
    by Whitepod on 2019-09-21 at 4:27 PM

    Excellent app

  • Gives me Help with pronouncing
    by Pold'E on 2019-07-29 at 9:18 PM

    I just downloaded the app to help me with medical pronouncing, I am not a native English speaker. The app DOES have an audio pronounce guide. Just click on the tiny speaker beside the name. The app is supposed to have audio pronouncing of words but I can’t find that function in the app.

  • Great reference tool in a pinch
    by 305soldier on 2019-06-08 at 3:15 AM

    I really like the quick access to multiple sources in one page.

  • Awesome App
    by Kila bs on 2019-05-17 at 6:30 AM

    Please keep this app free 💜🙏🏾

  • Such a great tool!
    by KTSupport on 2019-05-01 at 11:51 PM

    Thank you so much for creating such an amazing app for us nurses. I am a recent new grad RN and I can definitely see how useful this tool will be on the floor.

  • Doubt killer

    by Adam_79 on 2018-02-03 at 12:18 AM

    I tried looking up 2 symptoms & it wasn’t found, 3rd time was uremic syndrome; word not found. Don’t call yourself a nursing dictionary please

  • Really!! No concept of Vital Port !
    by Culo-sabroso on 2017-11-13 at 5:04 AM

    Vital Port concept not founded

  • Great quick go to app
    by lilmum23 on 2017-10-28 at 4:45 PM

    It is easy to access.. gives you a lot of definition when there are multiple sources. Also, some has pictures included on the definition which helps a lot. Saves me time by looking in the app instead of the thick medical dictionary book i have.

  • Nursing Medical Dictionary
    by sapojo on 2017-10-25 at 3:35 PM

    I am a retired Nurse from 1974 ( graduate ) I have seen many medical dictionaries. I'm impressed with this app. I would recommend this to anyone but first for students in the medical field.

  • Love the explanations!
    by Sassyfalulah on 2017-09-27 at 1:29 PM

    It's impossible to remember exactly what each test result means, so I love the easy to understand explanations here.

  • Great app

    This app has been helpful in answering numerous questions I have had. I still have a year and a half left of nursing school and intend on using it often

  • Daily nursing tool
    by RN45ure on 2017-03-09 at 9:21 PM

    This is an app that I use daily as I've studied in RN classes. I'm using it today while studying for the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. Do you know what Hirschprung's disease is? Neither did I. This app is multiple medical dictionaries in one. Some definitions are brief & others very detailed. The only downside is that it saves words that I've looked up - handy sometimes for review. But it takes data memory. I just deleted and reloaded it today which got rid of 15 MB of space (1 year of use). Problem solved. Not much maybe, but I have a lot of my nursing apps on my iPhone & need every bit of space. RN45ure!

  • Good so far!
    by Gathur on 2017-03-08 at 3:08 AM

    I like the app a lot! It would just be helpful if there was a "word of the day" feature added. -Nursing Student

  • Not working

  • Nursing Dictionary
    by Nisha 93 on 2017-02-01 at 2:32 AM

    Great and quick resource. I love it! I use it all the time.

  • Great for nursing school
    by Nicole Aguiar22 on 2017-02-01 at 12:34 AM

    This app is a great tool to use for nursing school. Although it doesn't appear to be referenced from text book affiliated info, it's pretty much the same thing you'd get by googling meds, diseases etc. but organized into one place. And be honest we all do it. Read your text books! Use this on the fly.

  • Love!!
    by Raeedoo on 2017-01-29 at 3:11 PM

    It has everything I love it!!

  • Love!
    by So_nigerian on 2017-01-16 at 8:33 PM

    I love this app. It allows me to check all the terminologies I am unfamiliar with. What I like most is that it isn't too complicated unlike other apps.

  • Outstanding
