Apps for nurses: Taber’s Medical Dictionary

BY SCRUBS EDITOR 

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
