[prMac.com] Durham, N.C. - Modality, Inc. today announced that a Saunders Q & A application for the NCLEX-RN Exam is now available from the Apple App Store. The new iPhone and iPod touch application, developed through a partnership with medical publisher Elsevier and based on the bestselling Saunders flash card set authored by Linda A. Silvestri, aids students in preparing for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses.
"The NCLEX-RN exam requires detailed knowledge in a variety of areas," said Modality CEO and founder S. Mark Williams, Ph.D. "The revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch have given us the ability to create data sorting and assessment tools in this app that enrich the user experience greatly and deliver a more personalized study experience that will make a big difference on test day."
With nearly 1,000 practice questions, organized in the same style as the current exam, the app allows users to create custom quiz and review sets based on four knowledge categories: Safe and Effective Care Environment, Health Promotion and Maintenance, Psychosocial Integrity, and Physiological Integrity. Each question includes a detailed rationale to help students learn why each answer is correct, as well as statistical tracking to measure their progress and proficiency as they move through the application.
Modality provides more than two-dozen education applications for medical, nursing students and practicing health care professionals.
