OnlineLPNtoRN.org – Terrific Apps Every Nurse Should Be Using

OnlineLPNtoRN.org – Terrific Apps Every Nurse Should Be Using
http://www.OnlineLPNtoRN.org/

Mobile applications for tablets and even smartphones have the capacity to make any nurse or nursing student’s life easier. NCLEX study apps for those seeking their RN license are comprehensive and often offer specialized learning modules for different parts of the test. A bevy of nursing flashcard apps, human anatomy references, prescription drug encyclopedias, and medical term dictionaries make it easy to look up facts that can be hard to remember on the go. Even general productivity apps like Evernote and Dropbox can make a nurse’s life easier by streamlining scheduling and other administrative tasks and offering synced calendars and event reminder functions. A tablet or phone with the right apps can quickly become a nurse’s best ally for maintaining order and sanity with an incredibly busy lifestyle. The apps on this list are some of our favorites, and we think picking up even just a select few of these can make any nurse’s life easier. They’re categorized and numbered for easy browsing (the numbers aren’t rankings), and most are available for iOS, Android, and even Windows Phone or PC.

Privacy Badger – Blocks Spying Ads and Invisible Trackers

Privacy Badger – Blocks Spying Ads and Invisible Trackers
https://www.eff.org/privacybadger/

Privacy Badger is a browser add-on that stops advertisers and other third-party trackers from secretly tracking where you go and what pages you look at on the web. If an advertiser seems to be tracking you across multiple websites without your permission, Privacy Badger automatically blocks that advertiser from loading any more content in your browser. To the advertiser, it’s like you suddenly disappeared. Privacy Badger was born out of our desire to be able to recommend a single extension that would automatically analyze and block any tracker or ad that violated the principle of user consent; which could function well without any settings, knowledge or configuration by the user; which is produced by an organization that is unambiguously working for its users rather than for advertisers; and which uses algorithmic methods to decide what is and isn’t tracking.

National Ombudsman – Protecting Small Businesses and Promoting Government Accountability

National Ombudsman – Protecting Small Businesses and Promoting Government Accountability
http://www.sba.gov/ombudsman/

The Office of the National Ombudsman assists small businesses facing unfair or excessive federal regulatory compliance or enforcement issues such as repetitive audits or investigations, excessive fines, and retaliation. As an impartial liaison, the Office of the National Ombudsman directs reported regulatory fairness matters to the appropriate federal agency for high-level fairness review and works across government to address those concerns, reduce regulatory burdens, and help small businesses succeed. Congress established the Office of the National Ombudsman in 1996 as part of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA). The Act ensures that businesses, small government entities, and small nonprofit organizations have a means to comment if they experience unfair regulatory enforcement actions by federal agencies. The National Ombudsman Can Help: a) If you’re a small business or represent one, a non-profit organization, or a small government entity (population 50,000 or less); and b) If your comment or complaint directly involves a federal agency and federal regulation.
