There are lots of medical dictionaries out there, but it seems that Taber’s Medical Dictionarydescribe the image for Mobile + Web–which is used a ton in nursing schools–is one of the top choices. If what they claim is true (“including 30% more medical terms than any other app,” “used most amongst healthcare professionals”), then we can see why!

Taber’s contains more than 60,000 terms, 1,000 photos, and 600 patient care statements, making it a hugely comprehensive health science dictionary. The iTunes page boasts that “Taber’s goes beyond in-depth definitions with nutrition and alternative therapy coverage, medical abbreviations, symbols and units of measurement, immunization schedules, nursing diagnoses, links to pronunciations, and more. This powerful app contains the information you need to answer critical questions at the bedside, in the classroom, at home, or in the office.”

What nurses love about Taber’s: 

“The index is super easy to use. Very nice to be reading my nursing e-textbook and switch to my e-Taber’s and get more info. I highly recommend this!” – Space Queen, Amazon.com

Taber’s Medical Dictionary for Mobile + Web features for all iOS devices:

• Optimized interface
• Universal Index Search – find topics across all indexes
• Personalized favorites
• Superior navigation

Taber’s Medical Dictionary for Mobile + Web features for iPad:

• iPad-specific interface – not just an enlarged iPhone app
• Side-by-side reading and navigation panes

PLEASE NOTE: This application requires a paid subscription to the online Taber’s Medical Dictionary for Mobile + Web service.
