The purpose of this article is to describe the use of a commercially available smartphone application to solve information needs of scrub nurses in orthopedic surgery. A semistructured, focus group interview was conducted with orthopedic scrub nurses. These nurses had solved their information needs about orthopedic surgery by using a commercially available smartphone application. Because of smartphone technology's convenience, accessibility, mobility, ease of use, and use at no charge, it is worth considering in nursing practice, education, and research.
