Abstract

Students work in fast-paced environments that do not allow them the time to thumb through books for needed clinical information. At times such as these, just-in-time training using mobile technology comes to the rescue. Apps, tweets, and the Internet are all in the hands of nursing students and can decrease their cognitive load while enhancing clinical learning.
