FNU provides clinical students with clinical reference mobile apps to use during clinicals. We feel that access to information at the point of care will enhance your clinical experience. The apps provided are discussed below and on the following pages. You will need to read all of this information carefully. You will use these apps at Clinical Bound, so you should download and install them on your mobile device prior to the start of Clinical Bound.
Lexicomp is a drug and clinical reference tool. FNU provides clinical students with the Lexi-COMPLETE package which includes over 20 databases with comprehensive drug coverage and other clinical resources, such as Lexi-Drugs, 5-Minute Clinical Consult, and Stedman's Medical Dictionary. The school supplies a one-year subscription to the mobile app, normally priced at $285. We also have access to Lexicomp Online, a web-based product with the same drug information. That resource can be found on the Library homepage.
To acquire the Lexicomp mobile app, you will need a unique access code. This code will be visible in My Clinical Plan (log in to the Portal to view) once you register for your Clinical Skills course (MH/NM/NP/WH 710 or 711).
Download instructions for Lexicomp are available at http://www.lexi.com/codes/?universal=Use_Code_Provided_By_Organization and are summarized below. For device compatibility information, see http://webstore.lexi.com/popups/compatibility/popup.html.
You must first create an account with Lexicomp. This must be done on their website, NOT on the app. Therefore, it may be easier to do this step from a computer.

Note: It may be easier to complete steps 1-4 from a computer.
