New iPhone application targets nursing students


November 18th, 2010

Tech-savvy students who are pursuing a nursing degree have a new study tool for their iPhone and iPod touch.

The Health Education Systems, Inc. (HESI) QuizME application series was developed by Elsevier – a publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services – to benefit nursing students.

The customizable app series provides users with clinically based scenarios, health problems and case information that students learn about in nursing programs. Four key areas of practice are addressed – maternity, medical-surgical, pediatrics and psychiatric.

The series’ design is intended to promote focused review and skill building. The app features a multiple choice question library, quiz performance measurements, an optional timer to establish pace and bookmarking features for further review.

Elsevier recognizes the potential that new technologies have to help nursing students finish school and enter the healthcare industry quickly.

“Every time a user engages with the HESI QuizMe series, for a five minute session or for an hour, it’s an opportunity to get better acquainted with the core nursing concepts that will carry these students through their careers,” says Ainslie Nibert, vice-president of HESI Review and Testing.

It is available for $4.99 through the Apple App Store.
