We recently came across some research that Google searches can give your brain "an inflated perception of self-knowledge", a likely condition that will soon be classified as a mental disorder by DSM-5 (paradoxically, when we googled this syndrome, we came across a condition called Dunning–Kruger effect that deals with the illusory superiority of this kind.

There are many challenges and difficulties associated with nursing school. One of the most annoying things I remember about my nursing education was the 100 pounds of books. I had to lug that enormous piles of non-fiction back and forth to class, clinicals, my car, my home, and anywhere else I might need to have access to them. It was a literal pain in the neck. I saw nursing students get so creative when it came to carrying their books. I saw them using rolling carts, rolling luggage, and one girl even used a Radio Flyer wagon!
Since our inception, we have been an ever evolving company, constantly pushing at the forefront of mobile medical technology. Soon after the initial pilot to test the usability for physicians who are invariably away from their "desk", it was clear that our product is very valuable for the physicians at the point-of-care. Soon after our launch we recognized the potential of the product in situations that take our users to remote and hostile locations. In the past, we have chronicled the instances where physicians and other medical professionals have appreciated the Skyscape technology at unexpected locations and unusual situations.
We launched the Constellation project at Boston's flagship hospitals - Brigham & Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. The exercise was the first structured effort of its kind in the medical setting.
