  • Davis's Drug Guide for Nurses
    Adam Alqallaf Published date: October 28, 2017

    This app is a must have for nursing school. It is great for quickly looking up most drugs though now and then the search doesn't recognize a drug that is in the paper book which seems kind of odd to me. My only complaint is the cost, I would expect the app to be another resource we could access after entering the code in our book rather than being a separate $40 charge each year. Full Review

    I love this app!! As a Nursing student, it could not be more helpful. My only complaint is that the search function does not always recognize generic names, even when they are spelled right. It's just odd. Butcother zwro complaints so far Full Review

    So great! The only drawback is that as soon as your free subscription runs out you have to subscribe for a large fee. But during that time it is super convenient and the comprehensive search index is very helpful when needing to look up classes of drugs. Full Review

    Saves you time from having to flip through the pages of the physical book, and has been absolutely amazing in and outside of nursing school/clinicals. Eventually you will have to pay for it, but it is beyond worth it, especially if you use it regularly. No sense in complaining about the price since it's an invaluable resource! Full Review

    Worked until last upgrade. Could not use comprehensive search after that. Support did nothing. Had two good months on the app before it failed. Don't waste your money. Full Review

    Only drawback to this app is when you purchase the book with online access, you have no way of using it to pay for app subscription. It simply asks you to pay again. Full Review

    I love the website but the app is frustrating because I cannot search medications by the specific medication, only the class. Other than that, it is very helpful and informative! Full Review

    If one do not have an account that means there is nowhere that person can subscribe to your product. Think that is so bad. Full Review

    Easy name search for any med. Makes my nursing school ppwk a breeze to type bc I've got med on phone while using laptop and so much faster than book, plus I get updates. Easy on the go reference in clinical that's faster than unit medex computer. Full Review

    It's a free trial, then $40 per year to use. Instead, if you already have the textbook, just bookmark the online website included in your book and pin it to your homescreen. Same thing, but actually free. Full Review

    Bought in nursing school, expected when buying a $40 app they wouldn't just pull use of it away. Now it is $40/year. The recent update crashes occasionally. Uninstalled after almost 5 years of occasional use. Full Review

    I bought this app years ago, now I can't use it bc it wants me to buy it again. Would have given it 5 stars had they not changed it on me. I agreed to a one time fee when I bought it and now I can't use what I bought. At least let me keep the old version I paid for it! Full Review

    Love to have the info at the tip of my fingertips! Easy to navigate, compared to epocrates, At least for me. Still missing some meds that are compounded but popular, among others... catch up davis! Lol otherwise, great app. Full Review

    Synel DPR Published date: February 26, 2017

    I love the app, it is very helpful, it has medications that I can't find on the paperback Davids book. The only down side is that the app has been showing a message that I have 18 days left, so I guess it won't be free after 18 days. Even though I love the app I won't pay for it if it is not free.

    Easy to use and search all drugs by name when using 'Comprehensive Index' tab, not 'Classifications' tab. Have no problems using in Android on Google Pixel XL. Great for patient's drug review for Pre-Op assessment. Full Review

    It gives good information about drugs. It doesn't have advertisements in the app. It has just about all information from the drug guide book, so this makes it convenient to use wherever. I wish it were free of charge. Full Review

    Christopher White Published date: December 10, 2017

    It would have 5 stars from me if it was still free. I own the book but I liked the app because it made what you are looking for easier. The app should be free for those that purchased the book. Full Review

    Andi L Published date: March 22, 2017

    It is free for only a limited time before requiring you to pay. You will not be notified it is only a trial app, and suddenly you will be unable to use it without paying for it. A subscription, nonetheless. Full Review
