Caret to open Accordion

You can register your personal account at the Sign Up / Login link.

If you are registering for a specific clinic, you will be invited to register by the clinic coordinator. Look for an invite email in your inbox. Please reach out to the clinic coordinator if you believe you should have been invited but haven’t received an email.

How much does PocketRN cost?

Caret to open Accordion

Our partner health systems cover the cost for patients and caregivers to use PocketRN for a set period of time while they are receiving care and recovering. The coverage period depends on a patient's care plan. After coverage expires, patients and caregivers will have the opportunity to continue using PocketRN by purchasing a subscription. If you are a patient at one of our partner health systems, you will receive more information about how to subscribe directly and will never be enrolled automatically.

If you are not part of a health system that is partnering with us, please refer to your invitation email for pricing information.

Do I create an account for myself or for the patient I’m caring for?

Caret to open Accordion

When you register directly, you'll be able to select whether you are a patient or a caregiver, or both.

When you are invited to a clinic, you may be invited as a caregiver or patient. Please reach out to the clinic coordinator if you believe you were invited to the wrong account type.

As a caregiver on PocketRN, you’ll be able to enter in your patient’s information separate from your own, manage multiple patients, connect to other PocketRN patient accounts, and meet virtually with our nurses on behalf of a patient. You’ll also maintain your patient account, which you can easily switch between, if you’d like to meet with a nurse for your own care needs.
