A new survey has found that 85 percent of nurses and nursing students would like to be able to use smartphones to access current drug information on the job.

Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, publisher of the Nursing 2013 Drug Handbook, conducted a survey of 3,900 nurses and nursing students and found that 85 percent wanted a smartphone app of the guide.

The study additionally found that 71 percent of nursing professionals already use a smartphone as part of their job, and 66 percent of nursing students used a smartphone for nursing school.

While 85 percent of those surveyed want access to an app of the Nursing 2013 Drug Handbook, 89 percent desire both the app and the print version.

Do you agree with the majority of nurses in the survey that having the Nursing 2013 Drug Handbook in app form would help you in your job or studies?
