In a recent survey, in May 2012 in MobiHealth News, it was shown that “…71 percent of nurses are already using smartphones for their job., and 66 percent were using it during nursing school…”.  In addition, in a New York Times Article of January, 2012, “….but the most profound recent change is a move away from the (nurses) profession’s dependence on committing vast amounts of information to memory…”., because, essentially, of the use of Smart Phones to get the necessary data through nurse apps.  Five years ago, in hospitals, there were no Electronic Records or Internet Connections, but there are now frequently computers by the patients bedside!Massachusetts General Hospital, mainly due to what it saw during the trial period of  a ground breaking app that will be discussed below, Voalte, decided to issue iPhones with this app to many of the nurses.


    So, the influence of the role of apps in Nurses is important, and will only increase. The following video shows why nurse apps has an important role in nursing care today:
