Ganga Pokharel, Manju Chhugani, Priyanka Bansal, Naseem Mancheri


The rapid growth of mobile technologies has been made but with some limitations. The present “Nchemoapp” is developed for student nurses on chemotherapy, focusing in the South Asian context. There is a need for mHealth apps in oncology nursing for student nurses as well as staff nurses. Training should be given about chemotherapy efficacy in order to improve the attitude about chemotherapy among the student nurses as well as staff nurses.
