The NCLEXRN 4000 software is here as well as Mosby Nursing Skills and Mosby Nursing Assistant Video Skills. NEEHR (Electronic Health Records) is also available in the medical software directory. ADAM, Clinical Lab Technology and Medical Assisting classes are also supported with library software.

To find the software, click on the Microsoft "Start" button. Choose "All Programs" and then choose "Medical." After you choose "Medical" the directory will show all the software applications available.
