Philadelphia, PA – November 18, 2010 – Elsevier, the leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced that the new HESI QuizMe app series for nursing students is available from the Apple App Store. These apps familiarize nursing students with clinically based scenarios, health problems and case studies commonly encountered in the nursing profession.
“Mobile technology provides an effective new training channel for health care students, and we are pleased to expand Elsevier’s portfolio of apps with the HESI QuizMe series,” said Ainslie Nibert, PhD, RN, vice-president, HESI Review & Testing. “Every time a user engages with the HESI QuizMe series, for a five minute session or for an hour, it’s an opportunity to get better acquainted with the core nursing concepts that will carry these students through their careers.”
The series addresses four key areas of nursing practice: maternity, medical-surgical, pediatrics, and psychiatric. Multiple apps within each specialty area drill down on core concepts to deliver focused review and skill building. Four HESI QuizMe medical-surgical apps are now available: Cardiovascular & Respiratory; Gastrointestinal & Genitourinary; Musculoskeletal, Neurological, & Eye/Ear; and Hepatic, Hemo & Endo. Additional apps in the series are forthcoming.

• Optional question timer to help establish pace
• Bookmarking to save questions for further review
