For nurses, Smartphones at work are the norm

Smartphones aren't just popular with docs, they're becoming a staple for nurses on the job, too. And the apps they're using are moving far beyond references and data-management tools, according to an article in the Online Journal of Nursing Informatics.

In 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that 72 percent of physicians use smartphones. Nurses aren't far behind, with 71 percent using smartphones on the job, according to a recent survey conducted by Wolters Kluwer Health, which is launching its Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing 2013 Drug Handbook mobile app, MobiHealth News reports.
