"What you offer allows those with lower literacy and numeracy to fairly easily understand concepts they can't comprehend when they read traditional textbooks. Aged care is a huge growth area in countries such as the U.S and Australia. We are desperate for any resources to enable us to educate assistant nurses. They are often people who speak English as a second language or who have little education. Traditional textbooks and nursing videos really aren't suitable. I spend a lot of time searching for anything that will bring the curriculum to life…Focus Apps, …are perfect for my students." –- Teacher Review
