Top 5 best apps for a travel nurse from Aureus Medical

Omaha, NE (July 13, 2015) – When you become a travel nurse, there are a lot of things you'll have to juggle at once, including travel expenses. All of this must also be done on top of maintaining your assignments and taking care of patients. Travel nursing jobs leader, Aureus Medical Group, shares a few helpful apps for travel nurses.

Fortunately, we live in the smartphone age, where many of these tasks can be accomplished with just a few swipes and push notifications. During the course of your travel nursing assignments, try to use some of these great apps for travel nurses so that life is a little easier:

1. Infuse or MedCalc
Both of these apps are developed to calculate drug infusions. All nurses need to do is enter the patient's weight and desired dose, then the rate is instantly calculated. Although there are smart pumps in some medical settings that accomplish this, Nurse Zone pointed out that not all facilities you are assigned to will have these devices. As a result, Infuse or MedCalc are excellent apps to keep on your phone.

2. Google Maps
Although iOS and Android devices will likely have a GPS app automatically downloaded, Google Maps is a great go-to app to download, as it is rarely inaccurate. Given the fact that you may be traveling to several new cities for assignments over the course of a year, Google Maps is one free app worth the byte space on your device – after all, no one likes getting lost.

3. Tripomatic
Of course, you'll want to have an app that's great for those times when you aren't at work. Tripomatic allows users to enter a locale as well as the start and end dates of your assignment. From there, the app maps out must-see attractions and things to do for when you are off the clock and ready to explore the city.
