This time management app is a simple but useful way to help nurses keep track of their work schedules. 

Users can specify what type of shift they work and on what days by tapping on calendar dates. 

Unlike other calendars, this resource allows users to copy and paste shift patterns over a range of days. 

The most helpful aspect of this app is the ability to share shift working patterns either as a photo or text. 

While not as visually appealing as it could be, and not allowing information to be transferred to other apps, this app could prove a useful tool for emergency nurses and those on shift rotations.
